Another figure attempt

Here is another figure attempt for today. Granted she is clothed and not a complete figure. At least one of the eyes and possibly the other is a bit big. Could round out the chin a bit. Bottom line, at least I am giving it a go with drawing faces. I've stepped into it and I guess there is no going back.

Faces and figures are hard to draw! Especially in ink. I think you are doing a wonderful job with these - keep up with the good work!

I think the eyes work well. There is a sense of depth because the rear eye is drawn slightly smaller that the front one. Good job!

I would like to recommend a book. It is called "The Natural Way to Draw" by Kimon Nicolaides. The format of the book is set up like a lessons from an art class. If you actually follow the lessons from week to week you will definitely develop your drawing skills. However, you can still get a lot from the book by reading through and picking out exercises to do. It is a book that I refer to from time to time.
