In the charcoal portrait, can you also see where the outlines are "fuzzy"? It takes some practice, but if you sharpen the pencil (and vary your pressure to get the values you need to go with the rest of the image) and smooth that out.
You can also suggest detail; I'll message you close-up pictures of my gray horse portrait and show you the "suggested details" that are still aesthetic but didn't take too much time. :)
Always here if you need any critique!
