This one's a lot of fun! A lot of tension in this one, and it's a bit different than your others. I just want to open it in photo shop though, and get rid of the reflection on his eye or soften it up.

Thank you Dylan for your constructive comment ! Untill now, I have not been bothered about catch lights in the eyes. It gives some life, but I see what you mean and will think about it. I may change my mind for my future work ;)

Beautiful, Thomas! Perfect as is, the reflection in the eye adding to the image, if anything, for me. To use a crude analogy, the image could be taken look a bit like a patinated bronze sculpture with an amber eye, and part of amber's appeal is its lustre. In this case the materials would complement each other by their contrast.

I say crude analogy, because this is the real thing, not a sculpture. Well done!

Thank you Chris ! You're totally right, this lateral profile looks like a statue or sculpture 馃槃.The dark green skin helps to give this feeling.
