Lee Jeffries is an amazing photographer who uses homeless people as his subjects. I came across his photos while looking for some reference on google.

I am not sure what you are reffering to by saying " I'm not talented enough to critique..."
Your drawings are amazing. Heart (Ela)

That's really lovely... I may have to check out white gel pens. I've never used one. Looks like it enables you to work into a regular ink drawing as if you were using scratchboard.

Thank you! Be careful with the gel pen. It works okay with art pens for minor little mistakes. You shouldn't plan on using it at all if possible. Recently I have tried ballpoint pens, and the gel pen is horrible with them, it turns the black ink a purple color. I used it for the blobs of ink you get with the ballpoint pens. I would definitely practice first.

Wow your strength is definetly drawing hair and all of the noses are great :)
I'd suggest drawing the iris of the eyes more with strukture?

I should not try to give you hints because your art is overwhelmingly great and mine is pretty poor in comparison but still I wanted to give you adive as well as I can do because advice is the nicest feedback we all can recieve from other artists, right?

Thank you. This is one of my earlier drawings. I believe I have gotten better with the eyes. For some reason, I seem to be struggling with lips now-a-days.
