    you need more contrast to this drawing
    like you need to shade more the black parts of the face
    work it on and you will understand how it works ;)

    Yeah, the reason it's un - shaded is because I was gonna ink it and the scan it to a computer to color it. But something looked off..... maybe m just not sure why

    Hey, this might not be helpful anymore because you posted this in October, but... try to look at the photo you're drawing as a cohesive whole, and less like a jigsaw puzzle. Look at how large the eyes are in orientation to the nose, and the ear. Look at the shape of the head- really try to block out the overall shape, and figure out /where/ on that shape all the pieces fit. What you have (or, by this point I guess it's "had") is not a bad start, but I think you dove into doing details a bit too early. Block out the large shapes on the face first, and /then/ whittle down the details. After you get those right, then go onto rough shading. Front-facing faces are notoriously difficult, but you have a great start there! :D
