Unbiased opinion? Well, you could work on the features a bit. Good try, anyway. "Waiting" is appealing to me. Nice job. Keep it up... amd I hope it's not too late to say "Welcome to the Woods" (I see Troy's been here, too)

Hey Teresa,how long have you been doing faces?Looks like they are coming along well.You should try mapping out the face,it might help.Also try drawing sections (eyes,mouth,nose,etc.) and bringing what you've learned together.Good luck.

Thanks for the nice welcome, and comments. I've been doing oil potraits for a while, but I used a graph to draw the faces. I've only been drawing free hand for a few months.

OK, some hints 2 Draw constantly. Get copies of magazines and draw the people in them. Don't worry about drawing whole people to start with, draw eyes on different angles until you have books full of them, draw noses, draw mouths, draw ears, then start putting them together. Get books out of libraries on drawing faces, read them all, and take what you agree with and discard the rest. Then do the same thing with the body. Draw nothing but hands, hands and hands, then draw feet, then draw arms etc and so on, you get the drift 2 Good luck 2

We are riding the same boat with portraits and figures. They are my concentration right now. I love to run into other artists with the same interests. Your portraits are nice. Like me, when you finish is when you notice those little things that are slightly off. Sometimes you get them and sometimes you don't. That's how I feel about that. Keep in touch. Nice gallery.

Your style is stunning! My favorite picture was the 'Safe' Picture! I would love to see more work like that from you! Keep up the excellent work!

Your portraits are very well done.......I can't believe it...........you have succeeded at probably the hardest of things to draw.....If people say they don't look 'right' or they need some work...tell them to $!&%$! off!!!Art should never be about perfection......its about taking something and drawing it the way you want it to look.......nice work..

Great start Teresa! It looks like you're heading in the right direction. I recommend Bridgemans anatomy books if you would like to see some great breakdowns of the body and portraits. Keep it up!

Lee Hammond has several great books out on drawing realistic faces. One is titled "How to draw realistic faces" and another is titled "How to draw fashion models". Both are only about $15 and well worth it.
