[art] Diary Girl: You Can Be My Mangaface

2607.Taking my inspiration today a relatively simple girl's face from a copy of Shonen Jump I have hanging about to draw from if I have no other inspiration that day:

Mangaface 1

The model is up there at the top of the picture. Here she is up close:

Mangaface 2

Me very pleased!

I'm not constructing head shapes and filling them in; I'm drawing-what-I-see here, starting with reproducible shapes and curves from inside the drawing and 'growing' the rest of it from that. So, oddly, this is more like life-drawing than cartooning.
