Very nice, but I'm actually a little confused about the shading myself. Where's the light source, for example? Judging by the side of the helmet, it's directly to the left of the image. The complete shadow on the top of the helmet indicates that it isn't in the sky, as does the vertical demarcation of shadow on the helmet. If that's the case though...how is that possible with the well completely obscuring the light source (if it is from the left)? Just something to think about for future sketches :9

Thanks ;)

@Starwars4J, that is very true. You have a good eye for detail, nice.
I do not have a "light source point", so there is no ground shading, etc ... and the helmet is actually duel colored, 1/2 white - 1/2 dark, so without a "light source" it could be visually confusing. I was solely interested in shape shading.

LOL, I was actually really annoyed with some stuff when I sketched it and was surprised it came out decent anyway.
;D

Well shading is most use-full in getting something to look three dim. So it is good to have a fixed light point for accuracy and quality. :}
