    Hi Rafael

    Overall very nice work and I love the melancholic look in his eyes. That's captured extremely well!
    Maybe you could take the extreme highlighting on the bearskin and the beard a bit further.

    Thanks a lot my friends. Perhaps I need to improve the highlighting on the bearskin and the beard like Johan says. I think I´ll do that
    Thanks again! ;)

    Superb job, and don't redo a thing. I must respectfully disagree with my fellow members who advise you to exaggerate the highlighting further. Doing so really makes for an unnatural "cartoon" effect in my opinion, especially with larger scales such as this example.

    Thanks a lot to all your comments. I just finally did some minor changes [be quiet Mike ;) ]
    I only tried to do more matt finish in the bearskin and add some shadows in the beard and hearing. I´ll try to put another pic here.

    Hey, it's your figure, do as you please. Just to clarify, it isn't a bearskin. Rather those are ostrich feathers that make up the bonnet .
