I gave you 5 out 5 on everything because honestly this piece is beyond gorgeous. Your shading work is absolutely outstanding- the detail that was put into this piece really shows. You can see every line on his face, even some pores on his nose. I love the way you did the hair. Its a style I don't see very often but is very realistic. It seems that you shade everything-leaving no white spots but later come back over with a soft white pencil allowing you to add an incredible amount of detail.
The eyes in this work of art are very captivating- something that I find to be very important when it comes to drawing portraits. You see emotion behind his eyes and wonder what he is thinking, what he is feeling. Art that makes people think and makes people feel are the best pieces of art in my opinion.
Very Well done.
