Tom Cruise Drawing

Hiii ^^
Here’s my drawing of Tom Cruise.
It’s actually one of my fav drawings.
If you have noticed, I haven’t drawn any portrait in which they laugh or smile because I’ve always thought I might mess it up!
There has always been certain things I avoided while choosing the reference photos when I started realism art. Hair, light skin colors, teeth and smiling faces. Now I’m okay with drawing hair or light skin colors but not teeth. So it was quite challenging for me to draw this portrait and I didn’t realize this one would become one of my favs. I just started this to overcome my fear of drawing certain things and that’s okay if I mess it up sometime.
Hope you like it ^^

Here’s the progress

You did an amazing job, good for you for challenging yourself - that is how we learn as artists, and its always ok to mess it up, what's the worst that can happen, you start over - big deal. Keep up the good work and just a little thing I see, I am not an expert especially in realism portraiture but I think the front teeth are just a tiny bit bigger (talking about the front 4, see how his canines in the reference go out a bit more and you did them basically the same length with the front 4) , but non the less you did an awesome job on the portrait, as always !

That’s very kind of you ^^. Yeah you’re right. How perceivable of you to notice such a small detail. Actually, I purposefully drew the teeth that way to make it look more symmetric but I guess I could have done better😅

It is not a problem at all you did great, don't worry about it. I just noticed it and decided to point it out, but if it's on purpose that's a totally different story. Keep going at it and keep sharing your art its amazing!
