The update looks good ~ particularly the back of the head and the facial features. However, I still think that you need to look at references for ears ~ if necessary, trace one to get a good sense of what should go on there.
Also, would you mind scaling your images down a bit? :) They are a bit largish, and I usually ask folks to keep their posted work to a 600 pixel width x proportional pixel length. Thanks! :)
It's no biggie, I'm just a stickler about having to scroll. ;)
As for the body, I’ll try getting to that soon. Look at Amy_517’s new drawing ~ tho she has drawn a girl, the proportions are very similar to your drawing of a boy.
Thanks for posting this! Google some ears, and post a (600 pix. width) drawing of the head with a more articulated ear. I still think you could add a bit more mass to the top of the head. Also, the angle from the nose to the lips to the chin is usually more slanted ~ the nose being the furthest away from the face, the lips being closer to the face, the chin even closer ~ forming a 15~30 degree angle. Right now, these features are more or less in a straight line, which is unusual.
As for the front view, I think that the child needs more forehead ~ the eyes typically fall in the MIDDLE of the face ~ tho this is unintuitive, it is so. Right now, the eyes are in the upper 1/3 of the face.
Try adding more to the top of the head so that the eyes are really in the middle (lenghtwise). I’ll try to have your review soon.
In the meantime, draw ears from several different positions ~ try JUST drawing ears, as you will need this practice if you are to model the ear correctly. You will have to understand the ear eventually, and you don’t want to wait to figure it out when you are actually modeling your character.
