I am starting my sketch book on conceptart.org. As I am still a beginner, I would like to receive many suggestions and criticism as possible. I have decided to do this illustration some time ago, while watching some old horror movies. Behind the box, there were a picture of the original movie poster, which I have used as a reference. Thus, I added some details as the scars and putrid marks in the face. Also, I choose not giving so much details on his clothes.
To start it, I am posting an image I made some time ago just to trainning the use of graphite, and to use as a bassis to paint it digitally.

Well, judging by your single post I'd say you have a pretty good grasp on tones and such. As anyone else would say though if you want to improve on your skills and what not, just practice and draw a lot from life. It's kind of tough to say if there's anything that you need to work on, you should post some more of your work, some of your rough sketches and drafts. Then more could be offered in terms of advice and all. From your first post though, I'd say it's pretty damn good though. Keep it up.
I am posting a work using pen & ink, which I finished today. It is just a study to make a draw using a coloured painting or illustrations as reference. My choices were a painting of Renoir, and a painted cover of Marvel comics.
