Try to stay away from drawing in an anime style; especially when it comes to the face.
Well you could be right on the light source, but I'll try and work on it the next time. And I should be careful on the measurements of the body since you did point out on her left arm.
I'm not sure what you're getting at on the face being lopsided, and I need alittle more explaination on your opinion why I should stay away from drawing in anime style. After all, I'm not trying to be perfect or anything.
This is an art forum, you're always going to get a couple of people that say stay away from a certain style. Dont take it the wrong way, usually they say that because they are urging you to explore other styles. Its good to experiment and try new things. By doing so you can create a unique art style all your own. Theres nothing wrong with drawing in anime, but dont let that limit you.
Anyway, the neck, it has to be centered, otherwise its steming from somewhere else. The idea is her looking from the side, you can use guidelines on the face and angle her head so complete the look without looking awkward.
As far as light sources, it help me to draw a little sun. draw shades opposite of it etc.
Anyway, in the end its important to keep drawing, dont stop or get discouraged, and you'll become truely great.
