Hi I've recently gotten back into art, I've always liked to draw but never really took it very seriously. Recently when I've gone to draw characters from shows, imagination ect I'm just not happy with them so I decided to look up some improvement videos to see how I should go about it. One thing that consistently came up was to practice and break things into sections. I decided to work on male anatomy first breaking it down into head, torso, arms, hands, ect and started to work on getting the head right. I prefer to draw a more comic/manga style character and use tutorials based off that. I sat down for an hour and drew heads using references and step by step guides focusing on a face on view. However I'm still not happy with the results but don't know where I'm going wrong, even after following the guides looking at other images I feel that my drawings still have a 'doodle' feel and don't seem to be as good as I want it to be? Or correct in shape? I know these things take practice but I was wondering if this will come in time or if I'm doing something horrific in my technique that I could change?
Here's what I've done so far, I know the ears aren't matching but I was focusing on the face shape rather than them. Any thoughts and tips to help me improve? Thanks.
