Beginner-- Portrait with pencil

I've just started drawing. This is the fourth one I've finished.

I would appreciate any comments and/or suggestions.

Sorry Folks, I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but I can't get the attachment to work. WTF?

I think attachments only work in photography.

nope attachments work in artwork too.

Perhaps your picture is too large? Maximum size for attachments i think is 100Kb.
If that's the case, stick it in photoshop and reduce size and/or quality until you can attach it.
It could be that you do not know how to post attachments. First go to edit your first post- below the message area there will be a little "attachment manager". Click on add attachments, and click browse. Look for the file location on your computer and then when you found it double click it/open it. click Upload, then wait for confirmation message. That should be it.

That is astounding for just your fourth drawing.
Is your last name Picasso, by chance?

Hey! Fantastic!

I like that fact the that it seems like you're drawing from what you see, not necessarily what we know about anatomy. Spot on!

I know nothing about anatomy. I'm 46 years old and I never tried to draw anything until this July. I've never had an art lesson, but my wife has arranged one for me whenever I make the appointment.

Fantastic drawing. I really love pencil sketches. Always have. They seem to have so much character.

It's not me, it's my Dutch brother-in-law. He lives in Beverwijk, which is near Amsterdam.

The pencils are labeled "Kimberly." Honestly, I don't know one pencil from another. What kind do you recommend?

Thats very very good. I was always decent at faces, but could never quite nail it to my satisfaction.

You seem to have nailed it. Good job, you should feel proud.

You're very talented. I see its natural - considering this is your 4th finished drawing.

I love what you did with the wrinkles and the facial expression.

Yes, good job. Keep at it! As for types of pencils, 1B through 6B will be softer lead (or whatver the substance is) with the higher number indicating more soft. And then there're H, 1H, 2H for hard lead. And I think there's an F, too. But I've no idea what that's all about.

Have you ever tried charcoal? You might really like it. It feels good and creamy when applying it to paper.

I've never tried charcoal. Maybe I will one day. And thanks for the info about pencils. My wife just bought me a set.

Thanks again to everyone for all the nice words of encouragement.

I'll post another attempt as soon as I finish one.
