Hmm, if you're trying to get away from the manga look, I think it's the face shapes you should probably change, the eyes look really lovely and stylised.

Not so long ago I drew a lot of really manga-ish eyes :D
But you are totally right about the face shapes.

I think after you really get into manga and anime style types, it's difficult to completely wipe the slate of it, even if you spend years doing something else. It's like with any style I suppose, if you've been doing it long enough, it'll stick. I still have the stylised manga type eyes in my drawings too, but I quite like it. A weird mix between manga and realism haha XD

That's good man, but I think you'd be better off studying his actual work. He was most likely studying a photo with this, but without being able to compare the photo to his study, you'll never really know what he was focusing on, or what he thought was important about the photo. If you study multiple pieces of his actual work though you can probably find things that he does over and over again, things he felt were important enough to him to keep in his bag of tricks. It's like Sycra said, if you really like an artists work, chances are it's because there is something in there you'd do yourself, so looking for the things that are important to your favorite artists will help you know what's important to you.

Thanks :)

Awesome comment, thanks! Yes, I believe the study was done from some photo. I had that thought that it would be good if I had the original photos, but don't think it's possible to find them, so yeah. Also, that Sycra quote is great, this man is full of wisdom :D

Eeh, really? I don't think I am that good with them :) Dunno, I just look at the reference and try to pick something similar (and fail a lot) and then compare the big picture... I also cheat and use eyedropper tool pretty often :D And even with it it takes a long time to find right colours, but I hope I'll become faster with practice.

I don't think using the eye dropper tool helps with discerning colours though, as you're not technically using your own eyes for it, but still, your studies are really good and it makes me jealous XD

Yeah as Neso said, don't use the eyedropper tool when doing these studies, i don't use it when i do mine and i think it helps you with colour theory as well, but great study overall pal it looks great, keep it up! :3

Yeah, certainly, but sometimes I'm just too lazy or frustrated and begin to make excuses like "nah, I'm not doing a colour study anyway"... Damn, I need to stop it :)
And thanks! I personally think that your stuff is way better than mine.

explosivedesign
No more eydropper tool :D
Thanks, I'll do!

Moar Ringo. Photo is a cover of her old single.
Not too happy with this. I tried for several hours to copy correct proportions but the result is messed up anyway. It's ok, just doesn't look like the original.
Drawing portraits is suffering ;_;
