Ugh. I love the hair.

HOLY COW! This is awesome!! I wish I could draw like this. But alas I can't!

This is so beautiful! It's times like this that green-eyed monster rears its ugly head and I get snappy for bearing terrible drawings skills. *snaps*
To echo all the other commenters before me, the hair is unbeleivable, the detail of the strands and the toning is wonderful, and his face looks so serene and noble (though a little too serne for a dark elf, but I suppose even they need a quiet moment of peace every couple of centuries. I love the eyebrows, though as a side effect, the white hair makes him look too old, ah... the curse of drow anaotomy.

Great work!!

The value in this is astonishing, and the face itself looks superb.

This is just amazing. I just cant even imagine how long you worked on this one. The way the light turned out is ... incredible... Great work.

Wow. Definitely deserves the Mod’s Choice Star here. Like the above commenter says, it looks like a photograph taken by the world’s best photographer.
