It's obvious that you have talent but are missing techniques. You are shading too heavily before determining the shape and size as well as the degree of shading. If you measured and lightly drew the shapes and then carefully built-up the shading your picture would be more accurate.

I agree with Just here, this is one place where "baby steps" are most important. You can always add more tone, it is more difficult to take tone out. With a little patience this will be a great piece!

Thanks Susan and Just for your comments.
At first I proceed always with a light and gradually darken.
