his mouth is up too high and seems thin. eyes are huge. left side of the face is bulging.
there are probably a few more, but that's what i spot immediately ^^ good luck!
You're so right. I do that every time. (giganzo eyes and small mouth) I'll get to work on fixing that. cool
I recommend putting it up to a mirror, or if you did it in photoshop, flipping it. This will help to see any proportions that are incorrect. But really nice job so far =)
Thanks! I did flip it a few times and I could tell that things were off, but I was having a hard time pinpointing them. Hence, picture post. cool hehe.

looks like Daniel Radcliffe and the shading on the right should be darker, though I get that the light is on the side, but the left is a little to intense
You got it! It makes me feel better that he might have at least an infinitesimal likeness to Dan the Man... cool
But you're right. The shading is absolutely off, mainly because I originally started trying to shade the way I would with a pencil - completely forgetting that I have dandy digital tools like airbrushes for that. I was planning on redoing the shading completely after fixing everything else.
Thank you guys for the critiques, mind if I quote you when I post the second draft to show how much it has - or, God forbid, hasn't - improved? wink
It's still not quite right... Improved a little... but not right still...
I hate the lips. Re-did them 20+ times... I probably just need to step away for a bit... urg.
At least he looks less like Sasquatch...
Also... by making sure to flip the picture back and forth often... I've discovered...
I draw ridiculously slanted... always. Ways to fix this???
Sorry if you guys are tired of me quoting you... But I really wanted you to see this last one - Especially you, Ginger. You have no idea how much your critique helped me.
I've always been told the whole "forms are not made of lines" thing... But I've never been able to put it into practice until now. Something finally clicked and I realized what I needed to do. So here it is...
Take 3 - with the photo I was referencing beside it.
Not bad, but I would work on contrasts. Meaning you should add a wider range from black to white in your image. Your image currently has a lot of mid gray, so it needs more contrast to make it have more depth and look more three dimensional. You can see that the brightest areas are around the forehead, nose and cheek, while the darkest areas are around his eyelids, neck and the bottom of his nose. Don't forget to take into consideration the secondary light on the left side of his neck and face.
