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.Think about how to make the hatching follow the form direction.For example on the neck it should wrap around the neck the neck it not flat.

Hey there Irish, it's good to see you back at it, how've you been?

I like what you've done in the 4th-last image. There's a lot more purpose to the hatching and linework, and the features have a nuance of style about them that's really appealing. The other sketches seem over-relaxed like you weren't thinking about placement and were just feeling for the form.

Can't wait to see more man.

@RottenPocket, Nice to see you too. Ah I've been busy with my masters degree so my own art has suffered lately. Yeah I think with the longer heads I gave myself more time to plan out the structure and the shorter poses are usually like you said 'feeling for the form'.

Ahhh, I drew a head with distorted figures from imagination and corrected it somewhat in Photoshop. 



This, That, and the Other.
