    i quite like the general mood of this, and lighting is nice though i'm not sure how much of his face you'd see with the moon light coming from that angle. i'd suggest taking pictures of yourself with the expression you want and working from that for the face. or a mirror, if you don't have a camera around.

    The shape of the whole head is off. Back to basics. The image attached might help. If you need this further broken down, go here. If you keep getting this, and I'm coming off as condescending, then you have a basic case of DRAW MOAR.

    The image is too black. Don't use black for shadows. Try looking up on color theory and learning.

    wow that was quick

    redriding- thats a really good idea i stupidly worked without a refrence started as a doodle i ran with, but to get the expression right ill definetly need some refrence, as for the well lit face, i wanted the pic to be more about the character than anything else but i think i may have taken this a little far ill try darkening it u p thanks for the tip

    Zaxser- Thank you diagrams like that are a great help to me, aprat from doing a few life drawing classes never learnt how to do technical drawings faces and heads have always been an issue for me, and im certain i have a classic case of DRAW MOAR

    Arshes Nei- im aware that using black for shadows is pore practise i think i just let myself wonder as i was working with a black background and it was so easy to use black, neither the less THIS WAS WRONG OF ME and i shall make changes. thanks alot for the crit

    thanks for the help i hoope to update soon

    Ok so if you look at the eye socket in your drawing it has a different angle on it to the head I think. The eye seems to be from more of a three quater above view, while the rest of the head is more in profile. Try drawing a skull over your drawing to check the bone structure.
