One of my biggest issues when I try to draw manga is getting the head to look less flat. I can draw a decent head shape, and decent individual features (sorry, no way right now to post any of my work), but when I try to draw the features on my face they look cut/pasted on. What is important to remember when drawing the aspects of a face, to give it depth and perspective?

Have you tried using references? Drawing a face realistically from a photo, then drawing it manga style is sometimes easier for some people.

Ooh, good idea. I have an art practice book at home and did a self-portrait once. Maybe I could take that and manga-fy it.

And if things keep getting hiccuped, I sometimes use a handmirror I keep on my desk for reference, too.
