I havent drawn in ages but I was bored so I had a go.

This is a pic of Remy LeBeau or more commonly known as Gambit.

Ha, same here. When I draw faces, they're not symmetrical.

For me, one side of the face is wider than the rest. But hey, what can ya do? (Apart from practice.)

Just keep drawing.

It works better if you don't go in with something super specific in mind, and you just be random. Also, if you don't start off with fancy "pinups" (poster-like art, or grandiose portraits), and you practice the little things like faces extensively, then pieces like that Gambit one will turn out better.

Also, what helped me is seeing what sort of techniques other artists use for little details, like hands, or the contours of a characters face. I'm very inspired by Bruce Timm, Kevin Maguire, and others.

Yeah, breaking everything down and working on it until you get it the way you like it is a good way to go about things.

By all means, don't give up. Drawing & writing take practice. I'd love to see what you come up with.

shading. that's really all you need and your pictures would be about 10 times better. but you have a good start. just keep at it.
