Subject title: Cartoony portrait

Hi! I've been trying to get better at values. I did this drawing on a paper and this is the scanned and edited version.
I have a Instagram, if you can critique my newest stuff I will be happy too!

When you scan a pencil drawing often the values range is short.
One thing I like to do is running an auto-contrast filter from e.g. Krita and check if the result pops out more:

The filter worked wonders, good job man!

I don't know if this exists in Krita; in Corel Painter there is a pretty wierd tool where you can select edges of how mild you want your values to get basically which should be even better for this kind of stuff. Here is a video on sketch presentation which uses it: see, it's supposed to be fi_le like the file from the computer... the one where you put the data things in.
