I've been playing around on photoshop recently and I just can't seem to get the hang on drawing mouths. I'm so frustrated with it I'm about to trash the whole thing and start over. I think I've done pretty well on it consider I'm using a mouse and not a tablet, but I can't seem to get the mouth to look right. Anyways, here it is, without the mouth because I suck. :]

Don't give up. This is pretty good. Drawing faces takes lots of practice. Trust me. You will mess up a lot more. It's all part of the learning process. Just keep practicing.

Actually, what you have for the style of the work, is not bad. But yes.. Joe gives good advice - Don't give up!!!

One thing I do, is have a sketch book with me always, simply for form studies... pages eyes, pages of noses, pages of mouths, etc... in all different angles and directions... some similar.. some line drawing some shading, simply for the training of the mind. if you have issues with the mouth.. then draw that - EVERYWHERE.... when ever you have the inclination to doodle... it will get easier and less frustrating as you become more comfortable with it... You are doing great! keep it up!
May your world be painted in the Brightest of colors!
