Spooky demon guy thing

I've been teaching myself to draw and so this is my first proper attempt at a face - well, two faces in fact - and more playing around with shading.
I think it almost works. Still need work to do with proportions and wasn't really sure what the best way to do the shadows was so it's all over the place but it definitely has that traditional comic book style feel and I'm pleased with how the hair turned out. I've got a long way to go before I'm 'pro' but given that when I drew the knight two weeks ago any attempt at a face would have been flat and lifeless I think I've improved loads.
...And so in light of the fact that my blog has become less about writing and is starting to have a fair bit of art I've given the blog title a slight name change to reflect that.
