    James Bond - Daniel Craig

    This is my favourite James Bond ever. I don't know but his acting and his face make me think he's the perfect James Bond .

    Photoshop - Wacom - around 2h

    This is the first time I've ever done a portrait with PC and PS, so, you know...

    The value gradients seem a bit splotchy. Go back over this with as large a brush as you can get away with and simplify your brushstrokes - make individual planes discernible.

    Your edges are also too uniform. Generally, the light side of an object will have a crisper edge than the side in shadow. Check out the link to Elwell's Edge Tutorial in my sig for more on that.

    It is recognizable. That is good. I would say clean up the brushwork.

    nice portrait - could use some sharpness though
    hair and eybrows shouldn't be drawn strand-by-strand
    and those lips are just scary (maybe 'cause they are much more detailed than other parts of the pic)

    Good work on the original.

    What I like the best is that it's a good likeness. The angular silhoutte is very good.
    What I like least is the lips which, I agree, are probably the weakest part. They are a bit small, feminine and overdefined compared to the rest of the portrait. You might consider increasing the detail on his eyes.

    You are getting a distracting stuttering effect in your brush strokes. You can eliminate it by reducing your "spacing" to zero on your brush. Increasing the sharpness of your brush may also be a good idea. At thumbnail size this looks brilliant but at full size it seems blurry.

    I'd recommend not using obvious PS filters. They make good art look amateurish.

    Thanks for sharing this portrait. Hope my comments make sense.
