    I really like it except for a couple points. The ear seems too far back and maybe a bit low? But his eyes are definitely of different size.

    Same for me, the ear is far too low(should be approximately at eye level) and the left eye is too big.

    Concerning the lack of comments you receive on CA, you obviously got a good grip at painting people but on a picture like that, there isn't much to say except on the technique itself. If you want to have more interesting feedback, show us your pictures that actually tell a story. Those are the pictures that people will like or dislike and comment.

    I think it's great, especially since you've only been using digital media a short time.

    I don't know Paul Weller's face that well, but I know it well enough to see a clear likeness here. I think you've done well with the feeling of structure in the head & the way the flesh sits on that in different areas: forehead, cheek, neck etc. They feel like they have the right treatment for each different area. I like the additions you made in the neck in the second version, with the darker creases.

    The only small thing that bugs me is his fringe, but I'm assuming that's how his hair is actually cut in the ref...

    It looks as though there's a jpg glitch in his hair in the upper right corner of his forehead (our right), not sure if you want to check that out or if it's just an upload thing- maybe it's a selection thing that you didn't fix properly?

    I personally would also soften the transition from light to dark on his forehead on the top left, beneath those strands of hair- just seems like a strong line of shadow under there which needs softening.

    I kind of agree that his eyes look slightly different sized but without seeing the ref, I think it's acceptable as normal facial asymmetry.

    If you're not getting many crits, take that as a compliment. If people had anything to crit, they would let you know...

    In any case, keep posting work!

    thanks for the feedback guys i have not really got into painting pictures yet but that is next on my list wanted to see if i could get the portraits done to a half decent level thought if i could grasp the painting and blending on portraits first then go enviroments and perspective which seems to be a really big issue with most images i see here

    btw this is my ref image and have checked the ears on this and seems to be correct but you can see if you can see it

    Superimpose one image over the other and you'll see the ear is indeed different. Also, the hairline on our right has a downward angle in the ref and an upward one in your painting and some wrinkles are more pronounced.

    dont try to copy your ref... you need to make decissions based on your impression/feeling. what are the most significant features along with its details. emphasize those.

    heres a rather quick overpaint to show what i mean, in the hope, it supports my writing.
