Holy mother of god the level of detail on this thing is amazing. Wonderful. Outstanding, Awe inspiring. I rated you low on originality just because this is not an original portrait, instead being based off of another photo, definitely not a con, since I'm guilty of the same, but just had to be accurate. You blow me WAAAAAy out of the water insofar as skill and talent are concerned, so I can't really give you advice. Keep doing what you are doing, because it works. fantastically. Well since this thing has to be at least 100 words, I'll just keep complimenting the portrait, wonderful use of highlights, and the texture on the skin turned out fantastically, his mouth looks photo realistic, and the jacket must have been a pain to sketch, regardless it turned out fantastic, and I'm interested to hear how you managed that fur effect.
