    Well hello.

    You have pretty good handling on pencil, they all look pretty alright. There´s some kinda cartoonish touch you have which is not all bad but if you aim to get closer to realism, you have to pay attention to some issues. The area of nose and eyes is often too cartoonish, too much "explaining" going on there, in a lack of a better word.

    Heavy outlines on the nose and eyes are the biggest factor which makes it look like it but you also seem to have a tendency to draw the eyes quite big. And a BIT too high up on the face sometimes too. At least it looks like it a bit. Also the noses are often really flat, they don´t jump up from the face and that makes the whole face look flat. For example in the third picture (with the wineglass) the nose is running straight down from the point where it meets eyebrows. And then the mouth is lined up with the nosetip basically - therefor the whole structure of the face is a bit wonky. Cartoonish it makes it look.

    All and all I think you have quite a good control over values, the dark areas are totally the darkest and you can dreate forms quite nicely with midtones. And your pencilwork is really pleasing to look at. Now all you need is to watch yourself not to add too much outlines (especially the eyes and noseline - try to avoid) and you are off to a totally different kind of rendering! Especially if you can also correct the minor anatomical issues...

    Good luck there!!! (and don´t mind me too much, I run around here and give my opinions which are totally just my point of view. Maybe there´s a hint of truth in there too but basically my mission is to find something to criticise, to help others see their issues... )

    LoL Loe

    Nice start, but the hands are weak, never neglect the hands or feet.

    Thanks for stopping by my SB... you have some tight rendering here!

    I really like the graphic elements you bring to the sketches.... just watch those proportions in the face...

    some tight pencilworks in here!
    be mindful of the size of the noses though, the distance between the eyelevel and the nostrils seems too big at times

    Nice work, the shadings are great, and maybe that u could work more on the portraits. They look nice but they don't look quite real ( i know, it's hard job...i have problems too).

    Check put my schetchbook if you please

    Real nice stuff. Dig it.
    Am I getting it right, that you're OrozcO's little brother? Your stiles look real similar. Any more talent in the family?
    Some of your compositions look too random though and have little to do with each other. You've been concentrating on faces too much too I'd say.
    Quite impressive stuff nevertheless.
    You gonna do something in colour too?

    In your first batch, the eyes were very large but it looks like you fixed that problem in the newer sketches. I think some of the drawings could benefit with some softer edge work. Looks like you have a nice cross hatching technique. Keep up the good work.

    very neat sketches indeed. The rendering is starting to get real tight, but some head features are a bit off here and there. You often tend to put the eyes a bit to far upstairs on the head. Just a thought tho .
    But these are all incredible drawings, keep inspiring us.
