    Faces?

    This is probably as good as it gets with my attempts at painting faces, I can never seem to get it to all come together! I would love to do much better but after this stage I can't seem to move forward...

    Actually, the face is very well done. There might be some proportion issues, but no more than you'd see from lens distortion in the reference picture. More contrast could make the features jump out more, but again a small issue. I particularly like the way you dealt with the hair. Very creative.

    It is coming along well, the next stage is to start introducing some shadows into the face that will bring out the contours and stop the flatness that you have at the moment.
    The hair is very creative
    Hope this helps.

    Thank you both for your thoughts. I will do some more work on this tomorrow. I did a pic of the Emporor from Star Wars and he was much easier to do bizarrely but smooth complexions seem to stump me a bit. I did feel I got the skin tones okay so far, which I was pleased about. I think a hunt for a few faces others have done on here may help. I would love to get away from the 'animation' look and be able to paint a more realistic face but it may be a while yet

    Coming along very nicely , the shading brings out the contours of the face and removes the flatness that was there when you first started on faces.
    Great to see you progress.

    You are doing well, next step I would reduce the white in the eyes just a little, they are just a little too white ,add a little pink area in the inner corner of each eye and then apply a slight shading on the eyebrow to give a little contour there.
