I'm trying to create a line drawing of my friend Steve, I was Steve's best man at the wedding where the photo was taken. I like the shot because the smile it subtle but definitely there.
I've been tweaking the image below in illustrator for at least 2 hours and Steve still doesn't look that happy.
What is it about the image that I've got wrong, Eyes and mouth are pretty much exactly as the original. Any help is much appreciated.
Version 2 - Incorporating answers so far
Been away and had another crack, Steve looks cooler now but still not exactly delighted to be there. It's an improvement. As many of you said "it's all in the eyes" and while they are still not perfect they are much better. Feedback welcome.
