Reduce underbite???

I'm drawing a portrait and it keeps looking like the person i'm drawing has slightly more underbite than he actually does. It's something weird with the shadowing, but I can't figure out what. Can anyone help me? How do I shadow so that it reduces the underbite??

Welcome to the forum. You'll have better luck if you post the art you're working on. It's hard to judge from a description alone.

Thanks! I tried to attach the drawing. Hopefully it worked. Any suggestions on improvements are appreciated, especially regarding the slight "underbite". Thanks!

Nice drawing. Perhaps he's just making that face in the photo.

Wowza! I love it, but then, I'm a sucker for a snow scene.

I feel like that forhead is alittle too large or maybe thats just my eyes playing tricks on me. As for the shadowing and tonal values everything looks solid its a good drawing. But that forehead is bothering my eyes just a tad.

I'm a funny critic, i can't draw people for the life of me xD

I don't see any under bite. I do think the forehead is too large but then perhaps this individual has a large forehead?

Over all the picture is very well done.

thanks for the input! The forehead does look a bit large, but I think I took the picture of the drawing in a slightly weird angle, because it's not as big in the actual drawing. Thanks again!
