Scuse me while I kiss the sky!
@darkiste, Thank you  Blushing I am really trying to work on likeness so that means alot! 

I like working very fast so i think hatching suites me but smooth shading is something ill have to get the better of too if i want to get comfortable at portraiture.

I think when you hatch you are probably not lifting the pencil between each line, if you dont do that its like scribble shading. There's nothing inherently wrong with it but ive found put me in a headspace of not thinking clearly about the plane changes. So a simple thing to try is to not drag the pencil in hatching and lift between each hatching line :)

@Fedodika, Yeah i do seem to scribble. I'll try to lift my pencil in the next few portraits and see it that makes a difference. Thanks!

One thing to say about speed alway favor control over speed.Speed is the result of control.Without though hatching can flatten a drawing.Make sure the hatching follow the plane direction.For example on the neck it should wrap around the neck the neck it not flat.
