It's okay, you definitely could have shaded a lot better, for instance, look how much brighter the front part of his facial hair is compared to the back of his beard. Keeping lighting and shading in mind when drawing or coloring adds a lot of depth and realistic elements to it. If I was judging it as just a drawing of your granddad, it's pretty good there's no way I couldn't tell what it was, but if I was judging it off of that picture then I'd say you could put a lot more effort into it! Hope I helped I'm not trying to be a downer just giving my 2 cents!

That is probably way better than any drawing I could do with coloured pencils.
You might want to look up some depth tutorials for putting in highlights in certain areas (such as the forehead), that will make your shadows look better and create an overall more realistic feeling. The hair is also lacking depth and volume which often happens when you try to draw each strand.
I also have those problems but a friend recommended a youtuber to me who has several tutorial videos. I'll link the ones which deal with the aforementioned problems

absolutely disgusting, the amount of lines on the drawing's shirt doesnt match the amount of lines on your grandad's shirt at all

Great drawing, I'll never be that good. I don't have that intention either though.

Looks like his nose in your drawing is having "steeper" drop/a tiny bit more crooked, and the ears angled more upwards,- if you want it to look even more like him

good! but just as others have said, needs more shadows. big areas of shadows. like the back of his head and especially his neck. learning to draw hair is a big thing too. Also, dont just treat hair as drawing every little strand. there are shadows and highlights in the hair, such as the light hitting the hair near his forehead and the shadows on the back of his head. second of all, experiment with different colors for shadows. may seem very odd but a small tint of purple on his skin may do some justice. the only way you'll grow as an artist is if you keep experimenting and push yourself! good luck!

is your dad an art teacher? around syosset, NJ?

This is great, only thing I would say is try and use more colours, you'll actually be able to use nearly every colour pencil for a piece. Browns are good for skin shadows and blues are a good colour to fade into black for your darkest of shadows.


You're loads better than I am at people haha, keep it up (:

To add onto what anon said, you could achieve more depth by using a wider range of tones, such as darker tones where shadows would be (a defined light source would be a great place to start) and lighter tones where the brightest light is.

I think you did a fantastic job with the tones that you had used, and the detail is great. If I knew who your granddad was IRL, and saw this drawing, I'd immediately be able to identify who it is.
