    It's pretty good as far as the painting goes. Now the composition of his face mouth in particular, is a little off. It looks like its sitting too low and its too small. His hair needs a little more filling in at the top too. Other than that I still like the pic.

    hi there! that's a very nice portrait - some things are a little off, i guess: the space between the nose and his lips is way too big, as far as i guess. this results in a very small chin - usually the face is divided into three parts that have roughly the same height: forehead, the space from the eyes to the lower nose and the mouth/chin area. your painting fits into that scheme, but the mouth kind of slid down...
    and another thing i noticed: the ear seems a little low i don't know your reference and i don't know daniel craig's feautures that well, but usually the ear ends approximately at the nose. so either it's a bit too big, or too low...
    also, his eyes look a little too close to each other, but that just maybe my impression...

    i would recommend measuring and maybe doing a rough sketch first - hope you'll find the time to get back to this painting, it looks very promising, i think.

    edit: ha, hampton was faster than me...
