Nice, but there's something off about it that's making it look a bit strange. I can't put my finger on it though. :confused:

Well, if you find it, let me know. Constructive criticism is always welcome.

Oh Mona.. how I've missed your work! :eek:

That's just simply stunning. I love his eyes and the shading you've done. As geck.. there still seems to be something off. But I don't care. It's stunning as it is. :D

Maybe his ear or the left (right from us) side of his face is a tad too large? meh..

hehe that is tasty pencil work, Mona (kind of extensive as good pencil works usually are) Ah, I think I get what Grace means; Craig's face in your depiction, as a wild man we know him, could have more rough face-lines/texture, more intensive shadows around eyes/nose/mouth area... some very basic guide-marks considering specificly his face (still it depends on chosen refernce)... apart from that imo it's done like a perfection, yum such a skillz :3

Reminds me of the guy that did the TV series "the prisoner", running away from everyone in a green bubble back in the 60's! :tea: Anyways, sorry for the trippy flashback, awesome render! :tmb:

I think you fully captured that deep sexual energy of Craig, Mona,but those small eyes are somehow...disturbing me,lol. But that's just personal opinion :D.

That's a good point. I think I'll pay more attention to contrast the next time, try to make it all a bit clearer. But I gotta be careful - it's Courteney Cox, don't want her to look wild or rough. :D

I'd say the eyebrows or the overall expression... which is influenced by the eyebrows... IMO he seems just a tid bit wooden...rigid. Still awesome shading, I only wish I could ever do shading like that :D :tmb:

I think perhaps he might be a little too perfect: the skin is much smoother-looking than he is in real-life; no scars or those minor imperfections we all subconsciously look for... :pi:

I had a quick go in photoshop with the liquify tool. The main thing that was bugging me was the forehead - my eyes think it should be slightly more angular than you drew it, partly because it made the eyes seem a little offset. You might also play about with contrast a bit, if you've got an image editing program; a little contrast makes him seem more rugged.

IMO he's quite an ugly brute in real life, but your drawing's good. :D

Agreed and seconded :D

I like the cross-hatching technique you used to build up gradual shading in his shirt collar, and the black-dark shades you achieved in his hair. By comparision, the face looks a little flat against them - like others have suggested, more contrast would remedy this. His eyebrows are rather thin/sparse for a man. In some portraits of men, especially in comic books, a 3/4 view with the ear and jawline in shadow usually has a very dark/saturated shadow running from the forehead, around the eyesocket, temple, down the cheekbone to the jawline, emphasizing the heavier bone structure of a masculine face.

This (http://i16.************/62i78ua.jpg) (i hope it's ok to re-touch it a bit :3) is how I pictured as for basic lines/shadows (it's that most of people have some basic lines which makes us to recognize them immediately even no matter realism)

Yay, Courteney Cox ish a fine choise! :D she's a one ssssssexy wom and well pronounced face ^^

nice, great technique. He looks a little to 'pretty' to me, at least in 007 and Tomb Raider he always had a grungy-ness to his look to me. :p

Very well done! I'm impressed. The way his hair is drawn strikes me the most. That, and the detail on the fabric of his coat and collar. Nice job!
