Sorry for the shitty quality scan, the pressure of the pencil warped the page a bit in his hair which is why there are random light areas.

It's not a bad drawing, but I think if the paper is warping from the application of graphite, you should think about using a softer pencil. I also think you could benefit from using shorter, more carefully applied lines to show the form. Find a balance between defining the edges with line, as well as with value.

Just out of curiosity, what kind of paper and pencil were you using?

I started out with a mechanical pencil when i had just planned on it being a quick sketch. after i decided to take it further i changed over to a wider variety of pencils, including softer pencils. however, the damage had already been done since i had tried putting in the darks using the mechanical pencil.
