    My first master study

    Hey gang,

    Id like some help on how to take this master study futher. Both for the likeness of Michelangelos original, and to make it a better drawing in general.

    Im still very new to art (about 3 months), so every and any critique would be highly appreciated.

    Also, this far, what is good and what is bad with my drawing?

    Thanks!

    EDIT:Ive taken this picture with a camera, so the quality is not optimal. Some of my lighter shading dont show at all. But try your best to judge it as it is, please.

    Looks alright to me, I would post it with more progress.
    The shadows might be a little too sudden and dark but it could be just me.

    Hey Krel!

    Looking good! (Especially for a camera shot).

    What type of materials are you using?

    Thanks Elwell and Kamber. Yes, will do more. Maybe doing another study will teach me more than polishing this one.

    Im using only a 2B pencil.
