This is very nice. Mcgreedy made a good point about the lighting.

I have always felt that drawing a subject without a strong light source was more difficult. With a strong light from one side, the light and shadows start defining the forms, making it that much easier to draw. Always draw from a subject. Take a photo of your subject with good lighting and have it enlarged some to make it easier to work with.

Also, Mcgreedy asked how long you have been doing artwork. It is very helpful when you let us know about any training you have had and past work you have done. If you are interested in drawing heads, you might take a look at the free book "Drawing Faces' that is offered here at Artist Daily. Check out the right side of the home page.

I hope this helps—Paul
