    hey,

    picture is showing alright.

    Imo you got the proportions (is that right?!?!) quite well, now its time to get the details done

    One thing though: the highlights on his face should be brighter!

    Thats looking great. But the hightlights in his face need to be brighter as marc said. Other than that great work!

    proportionally speaking i think everything is pretty much ok.

    I think you should pump up the contrast a little- so maybe darken your blacks a little and, as well as adding stronger highlights to the face, maybe add other highlights as well for a little more visual interest.

    The other thing I noticed was his hand, which is in a noticeably different position in your drawing than in the ref pic. In the pic, it looks as though he is actually grasping the rifle, whereas in yours it looks a little cartoony- I think that's partly because it's still in the early stages though.

    Anyway, I think the next stage is to start adding more detail, like some of the wrinkles in his clothes etc.

    I think this is a pattern among you 'need help' peoplz. You need to draw your angles correctly. It will give you reference and will make the drawing resemble the original.

    I matched yours with the original in PS and it looked as if most of your angles were correct but some were still way off so I think the correct ones were just luck. You need to pay very careful attention to this kindn of stuff. I know sometimes the tendancy is to take your eyes off of the reference and start drawing on your own but this is NOT the stage to do it at. Once you have the angles down you can begin to go off on your own a little.

    Hope that helps a bit.
