It might be the reference you've chosen, but your values are very similar. Contrast is key in terms of values.

Also your facial construction and anatomy is a bit off, The cranium is larger than normal and the body is kinda stiff in terms of gesture.

Although, you seem to be considering the planes of the body in relation to lighting which is good. Also the eyes look correct in how they turn around the form of the head even if they're spaced a bit widely. I also tried to give the hair more volume by making the hair not follow the form of the head where it 'bunches up' (if that makes sense).

Very quick an dirty, but hopefully it kind of helps.


I would say to seek out high contrast images to reference to really make sure your employing a wider range of values.

thank you very much
i will definitely try to use more contrast in the foreground form now on
you talked about the cranium being too large,i never noticed it but that`s mos likely because it's my first time drawing "realistically" i'll give it more attention

as for the gesture it might have been just because of the reference i used

I'm glad to see my input helped! Good luck with studies in the future!
Also, your values in your drawing are very faithful to the reference (now that I've seen it), just keep an eye out for more contrast-y pictures to study/reference to.
