Portrait Drawing – Lingyu


Hi Matt,

I’ve drew a portrait drawing using the reference image you provided, this is still not finished (haven’t touched hair and ear so far). I feel like the drawing still looks a little bit flat, Could you give me some feedbacks?

Also, I think I hit a plateau with my drawing somehow, I’ve been studied in some art studios in a regular basis recently, but I feel my drawing skills does not improve as fast as I initially learn how to draw, and I am always not satisfied with my drawings recently which is kind of frustrated. Do you have some suggestions about this?

    Lingyu, I am so impressed by your drawing! To me it does not look flat at all! Could you share what pencils you used?
