    Wasp First from mind seriously! :O

    Hi! Ive been drawing seriously two months ago now, and this morning during some boring school classes, I made this one. Is my -first- attempt to a nice character design from mind.

    Please kick my ass

    Costs me about 3 hrs. Stopped at the neck, because Im very happy with just the head.

    I think its very flat, depth and form is conveyed neither by variation of line weight nor by control of value,
    it actually took me a few seconds to get it this was a mask with the eyes of a guy showing...
    Maybe im a dumb one but if so assume they're many others out there and try to make your statement: "guy looking at you through mask eyeholes" clear for those ones too.

    In practice, i would say make sure where your lightsource is and add with a softer pencil (3/4B?) those darker tones where light can hardly reach the planes of your subject.
    More specifically the face behind the mask should probably get darker values and some more or less (depending on your lightsource) sharp cast shadows.

    Pretty good attempt for your first imaginative attempt. ^_^

    My first suggestion is that you should really block out the basic head structure first. His eyes seem quite high on the head, and quite close together. I think if you had continued shading the lack of thought for the head form underneath might have shown more, because there are places where the mask seems to intersect the facial planes.

    Agree with S.M that you really need to determine a light source, and work on pushing for more contrast. I'd also recommend really watching your line weight, because right now all of the outlines are all dark and thick.

    I agree with the last posts, and also the neck should go straight down, not curving out from the head. Keep practicing and have fun
