I love that twinkle. His hair and beard are perfect, as well as the slightly askew hat. Great work! :clap:

Nicely done. I especially like the texture on the shirt.
You captured his personality very well! Great job! Ruthie

He could be a dead ringer for an old man a friend of mine @ Deviant Art posted in his photography thread!
Where did you get your reference?
Beautifully done! You have a wonderful way with this medium.
That's gorgeous! Very well done!
