I started drawing recently and this is one of my first portraits ....
I'm curious what you think ( I could improve) .... I'd really appreciate your honest opinion! http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

Re: my fist sherlock portrait

A really promising start!  It might be helpful to do some more studies on proportions and lines. The details are fine, but if you draw for example an imaginary line from one ear to the other, you will see that the eyes need some alignment.
However, from what I see I'm sure you have talent. Go on!

Actually, I think you did quite a good work with the eyes already - it's just their position. You'll get better with each step
