Me and my girlfriend are making this as a wedding present for my brother, it's the hardest frickin portrait I've done. It's of Jack Nicholson from 'One flew over the cocoos nest'
I'll post the reference pic and the WIP. I have to have it done on thursday.

critique please, but for every CC I request a solution.
So no ' there is something wrong with the nose'
I want this is wrong, try this...

We still haven't done the hairline, shirt och throat.

I like what you've done so far.
I think you have the bridge of the nose and the nostrils too narrow, if you look at the photo the nostrils are in line with the inside edge of each eye but other than that I think the rest is spot on :D

I think you have captured his 'essense', but need a few tweaks here and there. Check your pm's. :)

Thank you for the comments, keep em comming=)

We changed the proportions on the mouth and nose, and we moved the left eye down a bit.

We really hate this painting.
Working around the clock in shifts to have it done, but nothing ever gets better=P

Thank you all so much, but we have decided that we won't be able to finish this unsymetric face in time=P So we are going to try and paint the famous pic from The Shining instead=P It's much more symetric =)
We are gonna paint in shifts day and night ( we have 42 hours) =P

I will post it here as soon as we got something=)

It's good progress, but if I were you I'd be careful about pushing the values of your shadows. While the deep shadows under the eyes are striking and powerful, the shadow under the nose seems like it shouldn't be quite so dark, because it doesn't do as much for the expression and distracts from the facial features a bit, in my opinion.
