    i had that problem for a long time (still do, to some extent), especially when working with color... one thing that's helped recently is my drawing class (first ever formal art class... :p) when we've been using charcoal... remember to identify your lightest and darkest values, and your halftones... work from there... sounds pretty stupid, but it's something that i never really took into account before... oddly enough, the value charts that we've had to create in class have helped quite a bit, too...

    hope that's of at least some help... :p
