    had a thread in main a couple days ago and made some real improvement on what I originally had. This is my first portrait and I just want to make sure all the proportioning is correct. If you guys have any suggestions, please let me know :wavey:

    The shoulders are too broad, she looks like a man.

    the face looks odd... like it's offset, but i think that might simply be a result of the hair

    I think the photo you're drawing it from is too poor of an angle for a bust drawing.

    Shading is your friend, but I wouldn't have colored in all the bg because it makes the drawing appear dirty. Not a bad drawing though, it's hard as hell to draw people!

    in that they barely exist and they just kinda fade away, i would bring them down a little bit more before fading out but make the fade more slight and not as noticeable.

    big improvement over the original should look. she looked like she could play football in the first one
