I did not know the actress and had to Google her. Having looked at the reference and your image, you drew her very well in my opinion. Works for me and the GIF gives me a good insight into your process, thanks for that!

Something is really awkward with her face…

What would you change to make it less awkward?

not quite sure since I am not seeing the original image but maybe the eye placement. they seem tilted and the spacing to the center seems off.

Yep, I had problems with the eyes placement, here is the ref.

Yeah, might be slightly off…maybe that near eye (her left) is tilted up slightly on the outside…not certain…just a quick look at ref.

Still it’s a hellofa great job!

if you allow it, i’ve made a quick paintover. the overall image work well but i think some features are a little bit “off” :
nose is a little bit shorter, eyes and mouth are too small and the ear is too high.
usually asian poeople have "bigger"cheekbones

No problem! thanks for the critique and taking the time to do a paint over. You’re right on the corrections and yep the ear was really too high :sweat_smile:. Note taken for future portraits!
