Thanks for the contructive comments. I did have a bit of trouble with the lower teeth. I think if I did change just one tooth, it would be the second molar down on the right, it juts out just a bit too much. But as you said, I should leave something once it's signed.

line in chin takes away from the realism, unless it a beard (although the guy looks to young to have a beard)
shoulders make it look less realistic
top of the head looks to much like straw as if he doesnt have a crown (not as in a kings crown, the bit in the middle of your head that the hair splits off from.
Thanks for some more criticism. Hmm... The line is part of a beard. If you look closely in the photo you can also see some highlights to where the beard extends below his chin. I drew them in at first, but couldn't get it to look right so chose to draw it over it as though it's an exact part of the shadow. The shoulders are the same shape as in the photo, kind of unusually sloped. I don't really know what to say about that. The top of the head had to be improvised... in all of the pictures of him I've seen where the top of his head is on a remotely similar angle there is pretty much just a rounded shape... you can see what I mean here: [link] So I made the choice to leave it sort of rounded and simple, and slightly shorter than the hair might actually be.

AGH, that is a gift right there. I want to be able to draw like that someday, but I can't shade or crosshatch to save my life, are there any suggestions you could give me?
The link given by mualem looked pretty good, better than I could explain. Take a really good look at that site, as he said, there are a lot of helpful tutorials there. Good luck. :)

hey AGH how long it took you to finish that drawing ?
That took about 6 or 7 hours I think.

I'm suffering from boredom, but nothing eases my suffering like seeing someone else suffering too! So I drew this boy who's unhappy for an undetermined reason... Maybe I should have drawn him with a severed limb or something.
I like that, especially the angle of his body.
