Scan it. Make adjustments in photoshop. It's a good base but you'll go crazy trying to get it perfect on paper. Besides, once it's digital you can play with color more easily. Like, making Einstein black, or a punk
Black Einstein ? :S
Adding more contrast is always good, work in the creases where the shadows are darkest, like above his eyes and the deep wrinkles around his mouth. once you get these darker just use your observational skills to determine what else needs to be slightly darker to fall in line with the new dark tone you've set, imagine it like changing the levels on an image in photoshop.
changing the contrast can add alot to a picture, if you're finding it hard switch to a softer pencil, remember to keep a sharpener handy as they go blunt really quickly and they suck to draw with.
