...because, you know, he hasn't got much time left, and if he's going to make a change...

I'm glad - it took me quite a while to explain to my five-year-old son why I wasn't drawing the top of the man's head, and I'm still not sure he bought it. :)

On the bright side, at least this time he didn't ask if it was a self-portrait...

Wonderful detail in this. I love the white hair.
I must say though, the ear looks a little strange to me, I think he needs a little more earlobe, and less of the dark shadow looking into the ear.

You'd be frightened too if you were his age. ;)

The ear went through a couple of iterations (itearations?) and could indeed use some work - largely because I am as yet ignorant as to the anatomy of the ear, and made no effort to get it right in this case.

Ears, fortunately - as opposed to hands - vary enough between them (between sets, that is, as well as between between the sets) that being off by a little bit at least doesn't really shriek out at you the same way being off by half a micron with a hand does.

Oddly, feet seem to be pretty easy to get right. I blame thumbs.
