    Nice work, overall!

    I think the end of the nose, the highlights look a little harsh - they have hard edges that could be slightly softer or they look made of metal or something. The left eye I think the problem may be that there's a highlight drawn in a backwards "c" around both top and bottom and that's making it come forward in a funny way. Perhaps (hard to say since I wasn't there to see the lighting) the lower lid should be darker, since the upper should logically overlap it?

    Very nice tones though on this...very convincing.

    Thank you for your criticism - the hard edges are a result of a poor photo editor which distorted the image during resize. The original piece is 18x24 inches so it has been minimized a great deal. The shading is a result of thousands of tiny lines - I used a different technique for the ear and eye this time around - instead of various overlapped straight lines I used tiny squiggles which gave those parts more depth and ultimatley more realism - I have a long way to go before I'm satisfied with my portrait work but I am progressing - I don't prefer this genre of art but it pays the bills - what I really enjoy is surreal art - I'm working on a piece I will be completing soon - I'll post it when I'm finished - happy to be a new member of this forum, and thank you for your responses.

    I'm sure this thread has lost mostly everyone's interest by now but here is a photo I took before I'd finished shading the neck and background, and it doesn't share the same sharpness problem as the other does - I would snap another shot but the piece is being framed.
