    I really like the way you drew the eyes in those two drawings. And I quite enjoy your pencil style in the second. I certainly hope to see more. Maybe full body characters?

    Oh how I love the hard/black vs thin/weak pencil lines! You draw gorgeous eyes, they're so deep and lifelike.

    Your pencil work is quite nice and I think you're on your way. That said, one thing I'm noticing is that your faces all seem to be very similar. Maybe it's just the way you draw eyes, but it'd be good to include some variety too. Try drawing people of different ages and different backgrounds. For a fun resource, check out this site:

    http://facity.com/

    Other than that, studying facial structure (like skulls, facial proportions, planes, etc) would be helpful.

    Keep up the good work!

    the link is cool although all the faces seem to be frontal views...which can be very limiting and a tad boring...thanks though
    Yeah, sorry. They are! Hehe.

    Here's another few sites to check out:
    http://www.lovecastle.org/draw/ (Has heads-only gesture drawing)
    http://eyedrawthings.com/?page_id=3 (lots of good facial expressions)
    http://www.pixelovely.com/gesture/figuredrawing.php (gesture drawing)

    Obviously drawing from life is best whenever possible. But seeing as how we don't always have an army of models waiting to be drawn, photographs can be helpful.

    Love your pencil work . It'd be nice to see some more colour though . Nice sketchbook!

    Thanks so much ChisLu
    I've checked out your sketchbook, you have some really cool stuff there
    The best advice I could give you, especially about faces, is to think more in terms of shadows and tones rather than lines. Try to "colour in" shadows with the pencil first rather than drawing lines, leave that till last...I'm no expert mind you, but I find thinking more in those terms makes the drawings look less flat
    keep drawing !
