    I think it's a great peace of work on the technical side, but how's the resemblance? (The angle of your avatar doesn't really allow any comparison)

    Your forehead looks awfully straight, that's the only thing that stood out to me. But you probably do look like that, wanna link the reference pic?

    I think the shadow under his chin can be a tad darker. What I think:

    Of course, I can't be sure, just think it should be that way.

    I really love this one btw, you obviously have a good grasp of the form of the human face to protray such gorgeous shadows.

    No reference pic, this was done from life. The forehead is a bit too long, and it doesnt really look that much like me, but I think it still gives the impression that it is a conscious being looking out from the paper, which is what I was really trying to achieve. Thanks for the comments guys, Ill do some more and post them soon.
