Re: Brother Portrait
ok, that's what i suspected. Look at his eye on the edge of his face, the left.
The eye socket sticks out a bit from the cheek below it. Bring the cheek line IN under his eye and then there is a gentle curve (on some people, this is more dramatic) that covers his cheek muscle and then reattaches below his mouth.
In the reference you cannot actually see where the inside of that eye ends. If you fix that right there, his eyes will appear to line up better and the whole portrait will improve. It already looks like him, but these two things will really help! keep drawing, you're doing great.
