Sketching advice?

I’ve very recently began sketching and I was wondering if I could get some tips from the very talented group here. I’m stuck on a portrait I’ve been working on. The subject has a very prominent 5 o’clock shadow and I haven’t been able to find any tutorials that deal with those. So if you guys know of any good tutorials or have any tips it would be greatly appreciated!

My guess is there are two basic ways to go about it: shading and stippling. Shading is easier, but the result may not look particularly convincing. Stippling is more accurate but more difficult to execute properly.
