Subject title: My first time doing this!!?

I tried to do a value study and paint a REAL human. I've realized trying to learn to draw in anime style will never get me anywhere if I really want to be an artist. I was told to learn to draw from real life first. Please critique this! I really need your help. I wasn't trying to literally photocopy it or anything but I want to know what you think!

I'd say you went to dark with your values in some places, especially the lips and hair. The nose looks a little too shaded on the sides too.

The thing that bugs me personally the most are the flat looking eyes.

You were probably going for something similar to Ilya Kushinov, I guess? His eyes might be stylized yet they still have 3D form to them.

How do I make the eyes not flat?

You've spend time on it and it deffinatly shows,

i dont persive visually any big hicups with your values or choices of shading/light.

I think many of the form/coherency/matchings left and right side - issues, could be solved
spending more time on the undersketch,before painting.

by thinking of them as spheres inside the socket, not just an iconic eye...

Oh yes you told me that before! I did another study where I thought of the eyes as balls inside a socket. I'm so sorry, I was too caught up with the entire image rather than focusing on the stuff that matters. I keep making the same mistakes, I really need to practice more. It sometimes feels like my posts can get annoying since I repeat my mistakes. I'm extremely sorry about that (ノ_<)
