I need to work on facial features. I tried on the 1st two on the top left then I messed around with the others. The girls look better since I did the last Loomis tutorial. The guys well they are just plain ugly drawings. I need to focus on facial features eventually. The folds of the eyes, muscles on the face, etc. I'm getting more comfortable with the ball and plane method.
The babies construction was confusing... I hope later in the book he explains it better. The girl looks pretty good. The guy on the lower left was a quick attempt at using one of his diagrams showing various facial structures.
