holy sh*t what sweet render that is, my only crit whould be that the face is kinda messy and not as defined. could probebly use some cleaner defined brushstrokes, but everything elsse is just slick, esp the bag and the overall bottom of the pic.
Great work man , especially the update,I love the way u deal with edges,so relaxed~I have a bit small suggestion, do not portray too much in the shadow areas ,too much detail or performance of brush strokes, so that it would be better to help you create a real sense of space.Again,I love your work,cheers~~

Nice stuff - I find the business and edginess of the "strokes" quite distracting though - can't really look at it too long becuase it looks all jittery. The transparencey effects don't really work for me either. Just my suggestion but I think a little more solid focus where you want it would make these really strong - check out Richard Schmid for someone who paints really loose but then tightens up the center of interest. That kind of "complementary" variety between detail and looseness can really work.
What would Caravaggio do?
