You're starting off fine, but you're not creating enough mid tones

I tend to go a bit lighter then that grey, shade a bit darker, then go white.

no, shades inbetween your dark and light parts
It looks like you start off too dark because you're shadeing too light

shade in steps, go lighter with each part
