It looks like you tilted your hand when you were drawing her face. When I draw, I usually rest my head on my other arm. It looks pretty twisted when I look right at it afterwords.

Wait, .........do you draw left or right handed?

bloominglove responds:

Haha I'm right handed. The paper was tilted to the left a bit when I was drawing the head.

hey the hand does make sense. in photography her hand could just be closer to the camera that took the picture. it depends how you perceive it. i considered her hand being closer to me. anyway very cool

bloominglove responds:

Thank you, good sir~! :)

Drawing traditional after a long time of digital always throws me off.

On this picture, her face is small compared to her hand (or her hand is big compared to her face). If you hold your hand up to your face with the bottom of your palm aligned with the bottom of your chin, your fingers generally go about halfway up your forehead. This girl would be able to reach the top of her head with her fingertips.

I wonder, why didn't you finish this? You could get away with cropping out everything below the clavicles and drawing her shoulders (which I mistook her hair for at first). Yes, the hand is well-done, but if that's there, shouldn't there be at least one arm as well? Or is this a famous artist's style that you're emulating that I'm not aware of (entirely possible--I don't know about too many well-known artists).

I've always liked seeing anime-style drawings with more realistic proportions, so I'm liking the size of the neck. The shading is nice, the hair is good, the face is proportional to itself, at least, and her hand is accurate.

bloominglove responds:

Thank you very much for your review! :D

I'm still very much an amateur with anything relate to proportion. Still a long way to go! :)
