    Well, it's a bit boring, and, it's very blurry, probably why most people just passed over it. I was about to as well.

    Yeah, it's a little hard to crit because it's a little hard to see.
    Where are you at in Utah?

    i think the light under the left eye and the brow needs to be a shade or two darker, theres too much contrast on the left side of the face

    yeah I am in utah, thanks for the tip cocaine I see what you mean I will go in and reshade those parts down about 15 % or so until it looks natural

    sorry about the low quality I have a shitty camera 3.2 MPX I think and my scanner is way to small for this drawing

    Hey, well I'm from Utah (Provo area) and some others on the boards are too, so just wondering what part you were from.

    it would help us alot if you took a picture of both the cast and the drawing, from the point where you are standing when you observe the thing. If I could crit anything...It looks to me as if the drawing is at several different stages all over the place. If you took the time and made sure that ALL the proportions were correct before you added light, shadows, modelling etc, you would come off ten times stronger. Actually, try to start over and do, to the best of your abilities, and accurate two tone block-in. It's going to be though and tedious, but you'll benefit more from 'building a solid foundation, rather than adding new paint to a falling building', so to speak. Hope i'm making any sense...
