The person in this drawing looks like Richard Wurmbrand.

Benoit Paille is a great photographer but you are certainly a great artist for capturing not only the likeness of him but also the emotion the portrait is filled with. :thumbsup:

Can I ask who this man is? He looks as though he's seen alot of life and is overcoming pain. It's hauntingly brilliant. X

I can't seem to find the right words . . . stark and harsh, yet soft and sad. Idk. It's brilliant and unique. I wouldn't change a thing.

Wow, realy love this, amazing job!!! The contrast between light and dark is outstanding. I feel in this drawing that this man has gone trough a lot in his life. In the left eye I feel power, his strength to overcome the hard and dificult times and in the left I feel a lot of sadness.
And the only little thing that disturbes me a little bit is the hard line in the corner of his right eye and the big one above his right eye. They take a little bit to much attention in my opinion.
But that is just a little detail. My compliments with your first portret. I want to see more of your artwork. Keep up the outstanding work.:)

Thanks so much for taking the time to give detailed feedback, always love hearing things that could be improved. I'll take it into consideration when I update this portrait a bit, cause there is a few details I would like to change about it.
But for now, it's time for the next portrait - too much staring at the same piece of work is never good for me. I appreciate the support, many more portraits are to come in the next month or two =D
