Her face looked squashed, so I altered it in ps, but it feels like cheating so I'll probably post the original when I get around to it.
And I discovered my habit for covering a single eye each time I draw a face. I gotta learn how to not do that...
It was drastically tilted from the hips down, so I tried to fix it with photoshop, but I failed... it's painfully obvious... D; and I dislike her hands. Very much.
I don't know if I like this or not... I had trouble with the shape of the face, but I think I did okay... and the teeth, I don't think I did those right either, also the wrinkles by the mouth. The nose is too pointy for my liking, and I'm worried about those eyes...
Oh well, I think it's half-decent... ;D

one thing i would suggest is to work on your anatomy. your limbs have a tendency to look not really "attached" to the body, and disproportionate to each other. also watch your facial anatomy. do you use guide lines when laying out the features? i would recommend that, just so that you can get a hang on how things are arranged on the face correctly.
if you build up your foundations, then you'll have a muuuuch easier time applying a style to your work. i'll be watching this thread ;>
Thank you so much! I've been drawing for about 1 1/2 - 2 years, so I hope you're right...
And no, I don't draw guidelines anymore. I used to, but they became too tedious and troublesome, so I gave up on them... but It'll try and pick them again, because I know what you're talking about ^^;

Also, like ninjies said, you have a ridiculous amount of potential. I can't wait to see more from you.
Thank you so much! You made me blush, which really looks strange since my whole body flushes red. Was that information necessary? No, but I felt the need to say it anyways.
*hands out cookies* don't starve D;
Thank you both for your comments, they make me so happy I could go through the roof from jumping for joy! They are the kindest, most informative words I've heard about my art, especially about me having potential. I never thought about it before, but it makes me really excited, and it makes me want to grab and pencil and draw untill my hand breaks... too bad I've run out of leads for my mechanical pencils. I'm going to have to get more tomorrow.
Oh yeah, the only reason I'm not posting every day, is because I don't want to spam my dA. But I did today because I felt really happy about what you guys said *melts into a puddle*
