 :2funny: Nolan I found that photo of you and Dennis in the web Ottawa news,  how do photos travel so far!!!  For a minute my heart whent up to my throught,  :sweat: I thought it was a photo that you guys had taken in Africa :whistle:
I had to darken it.  What is you comment on the wrinkles specialy the side right side of the cheek and nose top?
 
Nolan do you think I should delete the photo, after all it was in the news?

Thank you Doina and Tousabella for your suggestion, I have done the changes. O0

There you go, well done.  O0 If the newspaper didn't show the name of the photographer, you could contact them and in turn contact the photographer.

You have conveyed the feeling of the photo beautifully. Very realistic, well done.

leave the photo. Just don't sell the drawing.

Darken the right cheek some more where the cheek ends and the snout starts, there is more contrast where they meet. That will make the snout stand out more. Other than that, the drawing is very realistic.

Notice how much more the faces stand out now that they have the highest contrast? You have just learned a very important lesson here - always leave your darkest darks and your lightest lights for the focal point O0

PS - If the photo was in the Ottawa news, it just shows how famous me and Dennis are ;D

 :thankyou: Batman for your encouragement.

Thank you Nolan for the advice, I will do that,, for the right cheek you mean the right side of my drawing. 
Yes you are getting pretty popular here in my region!!!  ;D ;D ;D you might get even more popular soon, I gave your site name to Wallacks store for people that want to do at home art.    :gl2:

I like receiving all those critics to help me better my drawing  :thankyou: all :hug:
