I only started to recently again do portraits because I gave up thinking I needed a flashy and over dynamic pose for everything but looking through your work has inspired me and reminded me of why I like this kind of portrayal.
I really really hope I can push up to this level one day.
This is a great drawing, and I love your detail to the folds in his clothing and the arch in his shoes. It's very impressive. My only question, and I hope this doesn't perturb you, is where the light source is.
It seems that you have the light source coming from the ground up, like a candle that's beneath him. Aside from that, this picture is the most beautiful, wonderul piece of art of him I have ever seen. Good Job, Great Art
