    Stellar work! The nmm is looking spot on, same with the horn and chin shadow. Plus the veins going across the back of the head add just that little extra bit of realism.

    Looks great! The face highlights work really well and you didn't loose any of the wrinkle details. Are you going to push the beard into grey colors or more of a frosted black?
