I'm not quite sure I've got the hang of the hair, I need to practice some more, but for now this is what I came up with.
I practiced drawing over photo references, a lot, and studied different shapes of noses, ears, mouths and eyes, I think Ilike a more subtle linework and more detail, I went back over my previous assignments and completely changed the face. I also readjusted the position of the head according to the original sketch, where the left eye is slightly visible, making it look slightly more natural. I'm trying to pull myself out of my usual very stylised, very simple characters, I and found myself falling straight back into what I know and do si this was a very good exercise for me, I need to challenge myself to get out of my comfort zone!
Placement of the nose, I also resized the eye and eyebrow because they were too big:Eyebrow expressions:
