Drawing progress after 4 months

Hi everyone.

Four months had passed. I have to confess that I tried to draw every day, but to be honest sometimes I just did nothing. I spent a bit less of time on drawing (around 30 hours in overall) than usual because I had some other things to do. I had a lot of work as well and sometimes I was too exhausted to even start drawing anything.

Anyway, I did many simple exercises and a couple of full-page drawings (on A3 or A4 paper format).

The new thing is that I bought several mechanical pencils, so I have two with 0.7mm and four with 0.5mm lead size. I had also bought blue 0.5mm graphites, but to be honest I used them once or twice.

I have to tell you that I am heading a bit to mechanical pencils. I really enjoy drawing with them (with B and 2B leads), but of course I use wooden ones as well (especially 4B, 6B, and 8B).

A word about drawing. It is easier for me to draw things like faces, regular shapes, lines, and structures, but I struggle a bit with proportions and perspective. I started to add more details as well and I use smudging more often.

In overall, I know that so much of work is ahead of me and my journey with drawing will be long and bumpy but I see the light at the end of the tunnel. To be more specific, I see progress with my drawing skills. It is like 10% of what I want to achieve, but still, I am moving forward.

Ok, goals are still the same. I will add some new exercises as well like drawing with a set period of time (for example an hour challenge or so).

So, here are some drawings that I did through the last month:
