well this is not too bad for your first try , now -- the more you do, the better you become without even realising it . ---If there is a "Life drawing " group near your join it, or keep practicing on friends, also get some charcoal and good quality paper , most good art stores will help you . Charcoal is great to work with and dont be scared to use your fingers to smudge in shadows

Hi GL, that's very good for a first try...the only issue I have is the proportions of the top and back of the head. The forehead should be much larger, as the back of the head. You can see what I mean by viewing this video.

If you call it Omenakäpy it means apple pine cone. 37.gif I suggested Linnunkäpy on some other thread, meaning bird pine cone.

chuckle.gif Finnish from English is usually untranslatable directly. The crap I have to go through to find computer parts gaah.gif
And then the "helpful" websites that will only give me Finnish, just because my geographic location tells them that's all I understand.
Usually you can set it to English, but my knowledge of Finnish is so rudimentary that I'm all epic fail to even go there.
It's torturous on the internet here for tourists, not to mention there are two official languages, and at least with Swedish I can get around fine... but it's usually not an option. 13.gif
Just whatever to make the simplest thing the most complex it can be.
