Pencil Portrait of a buddy

Just sketching around this week and decided to attempt a pencil portrait of a friend of mine.  This is just drawn on copy paper with a library pencil and a charcoal pencil I happened to have. I think I may start doing a series of pencil portraits of various acquaintances or famous folks and posting them here.  Who would you like for me to draw?

Looking at them side by side makes me wish I had some darker pencils with me at the time.  I could photoshop them to match better, but I rather prefer to let the organic original show here so I can know what to do better next time.
