Roman sculpture, young woman — Jill

Hi Matt,

This is one of a several portrait sculptures I’ve drawn to help reinforce some artistic basics — specifically, ‘drawing accurate shapes’ and ‘drawing shadow shapes’.

I’d appreciate any feedback to improve my work!

I already recognize two problems:
—A tracing revealed that the nose and mouth are placed a little too low, so my measurements (and likeness) are a little ‘off’.

—And I did not think ‘large to small’ and block in the large shadow shapes first. Instead I fell into my old habit of getting caught up in drawing the features. 

But I’m sure there is more.
Thx for your help!
