I changed my ways. I decided that hateful reviews weren't really going to get me anywhere if it wasn't deserved, and besides, I'd get literally hundreds of pageviews on Deviantart for posting scathing criticism on people's artwork and no matter how true it was, people'd always come back to the age-old comeback that my art was shitty. I think the portrait I did in my OP is a really good one for what I'm capable of doing right now but it took me unrealistically long to complete it, I had to spend seven hours on the face alone. :/ Now I see the problems with it, I feel like a fool.
And I know, I know... I have been trying to use guidelines, but I always make the eyes too small to fit in the second line's space, the nose too big, and the lips too far down the last line. It's very frustrating. I've also been trying with the 'don't rush details' thing, but... :( I don't know what to do. I have talent, sure, but I don't know how to handle it the right way so I've been stuck for a year now ever since I began drawing. Everything looks flat and ugly.
Oh, and here it is for forgotten-name's-request... :/
