Uhm, is that someone we both know boning someone standing up while you watch, cry and hold her baby? Glad you're back at it. Good lip study. On your blue line drawings try starting with basic geometry like spheres and big sweeping skeletal lines. Then go back over it with a 2B or something darker to tighten up the drawing as a final pass. When you scan it you can adjust the levels and make the original blue lines disappear. You're getting the contour but missing the gesture so it feels clunky in some places.
