    You actually got the image size just right. It's very comfortable to look at.

    So this is a study of Michelangelo. Right. Take my critique with a grain of salt, because I'm far from being the most talented artist here.

    There are a few anatomical inconsistencies I can notice. The eye is too close to the nose, for instance. Also the wing of the nose is a bit too narrow. The fatty tissue at the corner of the mouth is also weirdly protuberant.The zigomatic arc of the skull is in the wrong place, like it's coming out of the eye socket somehow or maybe he's been stung by a bee. Hehe.

    Your shading technique looks solid, though.

    I think perhaps you should try and understand the anatomy of the head while doing the study and not just trying to guess and copy everything in the right position.

    As the previous comment mentioned, there are some anatomical mistakes. But the quality of your lines, the rhythm and rendering ability is apparent. Just keep at it. There is really no better method of learning anatomy than copying and recopying the masters.
