    I might suggest you could try doing a master study or two...velasquez has one of my favorite portraits called Juan de Pereja that the marks and values really describe the forms to perfection. Your light shapes are coming along but they are not fully describing the planes of the head so the structure feels like it would be improved by looking at how the masters handled such things.

    Hi obiobi. I like the 3/4, looking over your shoulder view. It reminds me of those cinematic moments when someone is saying goodbye and the person glances over their shoulder one last time. I would like to see you add a little definition to the ear and a few suggestions of folds in your shirt. I think adding some reflected light to your eyes and perhaps a highlight or two, on your nose for example, would go a long way in the finished quality to this portrait.

    great point on the mood he is capturing...that is the strongest part of the piece so far...and often the hardest part to get right.
