I just wanted to share my drawing of a face as it was the most frustrating thing I have ever drawn, I'm more of a half-realistic half-fictional artist. Meaning I draw people, items that look real, but also don't. This time I wanted to push myself and draw a realistic face. There are a lot of things wrong about this drawing, but I'm just glad I have finished.

Wow! That’s your first time drawing a realistic face!? That’s incredible! What did you find was your biggest challenge? Did you find perception when drawing changed slightly as you adjusted to a newer style? I’m a big fan of drawing myself, mainly animals and mythical creatures though

Ye thanks. The biggest challenge was getting things in the right proportion, like the lips... Those took me 2 hours atleast, and they still dont look as good as I wanted them. Realism, I have realised, cant be rushed. Unlike my other drawings where I would rush them at the and and it would still look professional. This took me 3 days, each day I spent from 1PM - 6PM with a couple of 15 min breaks. I usually draw superheroes or singers, here's an example of my previous drawing of a singer.

ye, the eyes need more of a glossy look and they are bigger than they should be. I tried, but I still doesn't look as realistic as the rest of the face.

It's good but I think working on your shading would help the eyes look quite flat and dead, have a go at doing some eye studies on their own

Nice job, I remember trying my first proper portrait last year :lol: As tips id say nothing in real life has actually dark borders if it makes sense, so instead of drawing the neck line (as an example) shade it, also try to add a few more tones and lines of varied thicknesses on the hair for slightly more realism.
Well done :’)

9/10 I wish it looked more realistic and not drawn on brown paper. It reminds me somewhat of James Blunt.

Ye, I tried.. But it still isn't as realistic as I wanted. As others have said, the eyes are what makes it unrealistic. Plus I need to press harder on the 4B pencil so that it has a darker shade. 9/10 is mad tho, nice one

Well you clearly have a talent, so don't give up. Just believe in yourself and don't let negative comments get you down, because you could make this image better and draw more fantastic images.
