Nice beard and wrinkles.

Gorgeous colors and details.

Very nice. Love the colours. 

Imagician (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 12/8/2011 11:11

looks better now :) (i always prefer to merely draw the lower lip under a moustache, too ;)

@Imagician: Ah, now I unterstand what you mean. As Adarias said, the "separation line" is not any line for separation, just a line for reflection. And I tried now to read this as separation, but I can't

In fact, you don't see the upper lip clear, it's under the beard.

However, I tried to fix this with a qucik edit (beard darker and lips seperation more clear).

Adarias (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 12/8/2011 09:47

 that separation is the bottom of the lower lip i think, but it could be drawn more clearly.

Imagician (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 12/8/2011 04:06

Nice work . I have two things here:

The lips. I perceived what's there as one lower lip first, til I noticed there's a seperation line going through it, making the most part of it the upper lip, giving him quite an overbite and bulging upper lip and a "choked" look. It let's the lips sit a bit low, overall, I guess.

Second thing is, the left half of the face is quite dark (which I like), which is just for the skind -- the beard is darker on the left as well, but for my feeling not as accordingly enough (should be darker, IMHO).

Very nice!

Thank you Cyangmou for your critique,

I finally ripped of the blue light, was never satisfied with it and edited the eyes and lip.

Cyangmou (Level 8 Marshal) @ 12/5/2011 16:16

nice work,

although I have to say that I agree with ultimaodin about the blue at the nose and the lips.

The lip seems also to be a bit thin and you don't drew eye lids.

Trick17 (Level 8 Venus fly trap) @ 12/5/2011 09:58

Thanks for the comments!

@ultimaodin: I did some minor changes, now the backlight is a little bit thinner.

bem (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 12/5/2011 06:38

Yes, it is perfect work. Nice style and colours :)

sasuke91 (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 12/5/2011 01:46

very nice, great colors and shading

Theoden (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 12/5/2011 01:34

Nice job.

ultimaodin (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 12/4/2011 21:40

I very much like this however I'm not certain about the blue backlight on the nose edge, it's a bit to bold. I think the pink colour would work better there. Still much better than I can do
