Here's a sketch I plan to paint. Initially I wanted to use a caucassian girl, but I didn't find pics that were good enough or big enough, I run into this girl wchich is more latin like. And since I'm Mexican, well I made the sketch.
If anyone has comments let me know. I plan to get a grip of painting digitally a little more, make a couple of images like this, and then go for a more elaborate piece with more elements and better composition.

You have a good start here. The eye nearest the viewer might be tilted up a little to much on the outer corner. I really like the mouth. Keep painting!

Thanks for your comment Euphrosyne. I´ll keep it in mind and work on that.
How about this everybody. It´s still very rough but it´s taking shape.
All comments are welcome. Thanks.

Hey, here´s another post, I´d really like to know the opinion of as many people as possible, I see many read the thread but few answer, come on let me know your opinion
Euphrosyne, you had comse comments about the eyes, how do you think I could fix it? Maybe making the eye closer to the viewer a bit smaller?

Move the bottom of the chin up a little, and back a little, not to much though, that should help.
As far as the eyes, bring the top of the eyelid down a little.
Try to recongnize shapes, which will help with getting stuff pretty accurate, and will also speed up the process, paint loose, the cut in with detail, Go to Nebezial's thread in the anatomy forum he offers great tips there!
Good luck with your painting!:)
