Way .. Congratulations on the job by the way - Most deserved - Bet you are stoked.. I've kinda been keping upto date wit what's been going on in your life by reading your journal - again i stress the need for us to catch up! ..
Now this, THIS is fantastic. Honestly, I think its one of your best works to date, I haven't seen quality like this from you in ages. Everythings just perfect, the shading, the gradients, the highlights. The only thing I think lets it down is the eyes. I know you've never been great with them, but some practice would be of great value.
(Oh and I've spotted a few tiny things, but I won't point them out to the world, no one else will notice )
