However, you could darken the eye just a wee bit. So that the levels of intensity are a bit wider (light to dark) .
Thank you very much! Yeah I thought it needed more contrast to darkened it up a little the other day will post a new scan soon

GallopingGuitarist: Thank you very much! I still have a long way to go though but I'm only 17 so there's still time :)

TinyLiny: Nope drawn on normal sketch paper I drew the grid out myself to help with proportions a lot of artists use the technique like Maria D'Angelo if you've heard of her? Anyhoo the grid will all be gone when it's finished :)

I have just started using a grid to and it halves the time it takes to draw the outline!

Love how this one is turning out! Well Done!

Love it! Wish I had the patience to work on the same drawing for more than a week, haha.
I applaud your skill with drawing out the grid, even with a drawing ruler (the ones that have the T on the end to make sure the line is perfectly horizontal) my lines go crooked. XD

CaitlinPalomino: Thanks very much :) Yeah grids are more accurate.

Iseul: Thank you! Yeah I'm surprised I've managed to keep up with this one. What I do to keep my grids relatively straight I'll decide my square size then map out dots at the top and bottom of the page and join them up that makes the lines relatively straight :) ooh I've never heard of a drawing ruler might have to get one haha
