The girls need a bit of a salon visit... that is to say, the hair could use a bit of filling in, there shouldn't be any air gaps based on the reference pictures, also, shorten up the ends of your youngest's teeth... do it by shading the dark in the mouth above the lower lip.  Still a little darker with the shadow under the nose on the same daughter.  You are almost there!  Nice work so far  O0

Doing great so far on the figure on the instrument, but you have him playing a G chord instead of an E! :2funny:

Brony, you're doing great on your son's portrait thus far.  :clap:   As to the neck of the guitar, shade in the neck and then lift out the strings and frets with your kneadable eraser and/or blue tack. Just enough to give the impression that they are there.  O0
Cheers, Val

I'll give you a couple things to look at...  the arm on the right side (our right) needs to be in line with the T-Shirt sleeve, that is to say, hold a pencil over the sleeve and the arm should be in line with it below the guitar neck.  Your block in picture was good, his features morphed as you shaded, the eye brows are both arched now instead of flat.  The shading on the left side of the neck loses the definition of his jaw line and makes the cheek and neck all the same plane.  Remove the neck shading and redraw the jaw.  Also, look at the angle of the lips... you drew the left side up when it should be slightly down.  Those fixes should bring him closer to the intended picture.  Nice work so far! :clap:

unfortunately you have lost the shape and angle of the mouth so that is your first working point. Use your tracing paper to ensure you keep the features in the correct spot while drawing
