Male portrait study.

I've started using white in a much more subtle way and I think it really helps. For a little while I was using strong white and using the paper colour as the shadow areas, but now I've found that it's much better to put in the shadows with blocks of tone and save the white for just the highlights.

It gives a much more refined look.
