Critiquing New Face


I have been practicing faces by using nothing but Artist pencils /watercolor..
I would really appreciate any Critiquing on this face..I am at a stand still now..I see
by a third eye posting my doll face..
I am not happy with the face..it is still heavy handed to me..I lost is totally on the eyebrows..But I am noticing the shadowing..This is where I am blocked standing still..I know it needs more depth but I do not know how to get the depth with out getting heavier..
this is also my first attempt at a bit of sculpture around the nose..at least it isn't a piggy nose:)
Feel free to Critique and be as blunt as you want!!!!
Okay after I posted above..I went back and worked a bit more with her..I tried my best to remove her eye brows
Then tried adding a bit more shadowing behind her eyes and bottom eye lid.
I attached her head to the body...Please do
Critique and be as blunt as you want!!!!
Alrighty here again is the face I have ..Tried my best to tame her nose down
darkened her eye brows a bit more..at this point I'm afraid of doing any thing because I always over do..and am trying to keep her light handed...

Of course, I know nothing about this, but I liked her eyebrows darker, but her nose is too wide where it goes up aways - it's just right at the tip, but then gets too wide too fast. But my god, I love her eyes! They are so alive! If I tried to draw a face, it would look like a stick-drawing, haha. You are sooo talented, Sherrie!

You could end up with so many different opinions! I like her better the second way, with out the stong lines from her nose to her brow. but with out seeing her in the second picture, I liked her fine as she was! Anyways, all of your dolls are wonderful!!! so dont worry about it!
Are you going to join the easter egg hunt?? I hope so!
hugs
