    I think you need to push your values more in your pencil drawings. Your face study is the best for this, but compare the darkest darks with your pen drawing and you'll see what I'm talking about. What leads are you using?

    I thought so, buy some softer pencils/leads and you'll notice a difference right away, its good to have a nice range. Softer leads scratch/dent the paper less too. Do you have a tablet?

    I don't yet but will soon. It's on my "college supply list" if you will. I can't wait to play with it.. i've heard that they are much fun but then again i love to do things with material mediums.

    (edit) i played with it a bit after the comments.. i'm not quite satisfied with it yet but figured i would post my progress anyhow "]

    You should really push your values in the pencil drawings.

    Yes i do agree. "Man made god" said the same thing and one of the reasons it was difficult for me to, was it was all done in a standard #2 because that was all that i had available at the time "/ silly me.

    hey man, liking your pencil portraits, they're also what I love to do, I think we're around the same age, I'm liking your technique but maybe you could try out using a couple of different tones, maybe 3, 4b/2b/F? and maybe keeping the pencil sharp, seems you're letting it go a bit blunt..

    great work tho, keep it up!!!

    All comments/criticisms will be returned, thanks.

    You're very right i do tend to let it get a little blunt every now and then especially in the larger areas. And i do use different tones its just that i cant seem to get very good scan quality "[ Thanks for the tips!
