Pencil Sketch Card/ACEO

Decided to give this a shot. Pencil drawing is not my forte, all my traditional drawings end up looking cartoonish and I always secretly wish I could translate my digital drawing style to traditional media. Thanks Gabby for this tutorial :) Now let's see how I do.  I dug out my pencils and I found an 2H, HB, 2B and 6B pencils. I have tortillons,regular eraser and knead eraser. 

Here's my first WIP. Gabby makes it look so easy. Right now I am not trying for exact likeness, I just want to create a decent and convincing pencil sketch. I might've screwed myself over by choosing a weird angle and a small media (this is on a 3.5x2.5 card stock). But I will press on lol. The eye is already better than eyes I already drew traditionally in the past so that something.

I am having a hard time getting the midtone to be smooth though ..


Here's more progress:


Here's the finished version. Well sadly, I ruined the cheek while adding a highlight using the knead eraser. :(


Tried to make another one just for fun. Did a bit  more of artistic license on this one:


Overall I am VERY happy with this tutorial. I still need tons of practice but this is a huge  leap from my previous pencil drawing attempts:
