Hey man, good start on your sketchbook. The character portraits up there are pretty good, and so seems your understanding of colour in them. But with that eevee sketch is seems to take a step backward somehow. The semi-realism applied to a cartoony character makes it look kinda creepy, with the sunken in eye sockets. Though apart from that, it looks like you used the dodge and burn tools here (seeing as the background "sinks in" with the parts you shaded), those tools are usually (except for rare occasions) to be avoided. Shadows are rarely ever black and highlights are rarely ever white. The overall drawing just looks messy compared to your other works.

Thanks a lot my friend, eevee was pretty difficult for me to do because I'm start right now to "getting better" for me its more easy do some macabre things ahahahha but i really want to up skills on this, i will make a new version focus on you comments thanks !

You're welcome. I think it might just be the contrast between macabre and realistic to cutesy and cartoony haha. It's good to see you're trying something different, and definitely keep on posting your progress.
Currently viewing this website on a better screen and on closer inspection I really like the eyes and purple-ish accents on the red/blood-faced dude above. Nice details!

Nice start! Look forward to seeing more stuff. It's sort of hard to crit and help unless there are more examples of your stuff to look at. Don't be afraid to post whatever you have, because we all know this is a process, and it takes practice practice practice. Everybody has something they need to improve on.
I agree with amphsix, dodge and burn are generally not great to use. Unless of course you are just laying down your lights and darks and plan to paint over it. Anyways, welcome and keep posting!
