Newfie's mma related art

I know, maybe posting this here is lame, but I don't care and obviously I've already made the decision to do it. I started sketching in pencil about a year ago and some of the 1st pieces I used as practice were UFC fighters, thought I would share, maybe get some feedback, and please, if this is not your thing just stop here.

When I decided to try sketching I just jumped in to it, didn't bother trying to learn anything about light, shading or blending, and the first thing I tried was this…

As you can see I decided to add some more portraits to the original which lead to this, which isn't finished but I've gone on to other things and have yet to get back to it. As I am looking at this picture right now it looks so rudimentary to me, and I can see so much I could do to fix it up, like adding in some shading and a little more detail...

At this point I got a sketching book as a gift and started practicing shading and blending techniques; I used one sheet just practicing facial features, and then tried another portrait. It started out looking like this...

And ended up looking like this…

I think the things I am working on now look better than when I first started, maybe if there’s any interest I will post more once I get back to more mma related work. But it will be awhile, right now I am working on a picture for my mom of me and my brothers.
