Character Turn Around

Character Turn Around - student project

I am kinda new to drawing.  I picked up a pencil again after over a decade break.  I wasn't great before, so I have been working on character drawing.  I have been mostly drawing manga faces. My big problem is proper proportions and just getting everything in its proper place.  Hair is another area I need work on but I think the other things are more important.  I am also finding it difficult for each turnaround to look like the same character, but I think that will be something that comes with more practice.

I really enjoyed this class.  I think it has helped me get closer to where I want to be as an artist.  I am looking forward to practicing this more.

My first attempt was following along with you.  The profile turned out horrible!

My second attempts.  The profile looks nothing like the other two!  But that's ok for now.

My last attempts today.  I am much happier with the profile.  I think my front view for both is too squished.
