My first attempt

My first attempt - student project

I struggle so much with faces and proportions. I loved having the references that I could pull into Procreate. I sketched the eyes, nose, and mouth on separate layers and then used the reference guide to make sure they were positioned correctly. I think the eyes are maybe still a little too asymmetrical, but overall I really like it. I want to watch your class about coloring to get some ideas, but I used some watercolor brushes to give her some life. I didn't plan the character in advance but by the time I needed to decide about hair I thought an edgy kind of undercut would be fun. Eventually I'll be brave enough to try some other poses!
