Beautiful work, I love the shading. I also like that you added your finger to your tools - smudging is a great way to to crest values and contrast. Excellent!

Never use fingers for smudging!!!
When graphite and the oils in your hands meet it ruins the artwork! As it ages, your drawings will start to brown and fade even if you keep it in protective sleeves and glass.
Invest in stubs =D They work much better than hands and won't ruin your art because they're made of paper!

What do you use the tissue for? Create the shadows?

with a tissue you can smooth the shadows that you created with your pencils :)
