Subject title: Critique my portrait drawing

I was wondering if I can get a critique on this
I want to make the eyes seem more natural on the face
But I can't seem to make that appearance
Any other feedback will be much appreciated

If you're going for a likeness it'd help to see the reference so we can give more useful responses. One thing I am noticing is you avoided committing to the details of that ear, you might want to study those. Also, the ear usually starts at the brow ridge and stops at the bottom of the nose, but it can vary a little from person to person.

the ear is too small and the distance from the chin to the pit of the neck is too great - i think the face should be stretched out more vertically. also, watch your line quality - for example the right edge of his face, where we can see the outline of brow ridge - eye socket - cheek bone - etc., that line should be very clearly defined, smooth and crisp, cause theres a lot of contrast. you sort of started with the shading than thought meh... your eyes will pop more when the shading is done - as eyes sit inside the sockets they are almost always in a shadow - then the actual bits of the eye are of course wet and glittering, so theres more contrast coming in.

other than that - do yourself a favor and drop the lined notebook paper :D
