colouring is very simple, most of the shading is via the pencil (!). it's a bit dirty-looking coz of the texture of the paper. if scanned in + a4 paper, would probably be smoother.
was a quick tryout coz i've not digitally coloured anything in a few years (i think).
i think i am going to just practice drawing head poses for a while -- the original pic, head was slightly tilted up. whenever i draw something it'll always "straighten" out. but since i spent so long just using ballpoint pens, i think i'll "spend a long time" drawing head poses with pencil...
