Sketchbook Studies: Pencil Drawing

pencil drawing in sketchbook
In order to keep up my drawing skills I go to life drawing OR do studies in my sketchbook.I used a photograph as a reference and drew out grid marks to get the general proportions of the nose and eyes and ear. The rest I relied on eyeballing it. Some don't like grid marks as a means to lay out a drawing.  I don't think there's a right way or a wrong way, just different ways of approaching drawing.  
Grid Method
 I have no idea why I want this to be finished as it is, but there it is, it's done. My muse has spoken and must be obeyed.
