From the thumbnail I thought you were sporting a beard, Russell.
russell higgs: no beard, but I am planning on going blonde soon.

Really, really like this image, Russell.
I guess it is just related to light and shadow, but it appears your pupils are each of slightly independent size...didn't bump your head earlier in the day, did you?
russell higgs: This was one of those days when no ideas seemed to work initially. It took me 2 hours to eventually arrive at this portrait. I sculpted and shot and resculpted and shot again, on and on about 4 or 5 times. And it was already late in the day.

There was one point when I just tore everything off of my head in a fit of frustration and threw it all on the floor.

I don't always know exactly what my criteria is for rejecting portraits, but ultimately I'm always glad that I do pay attention to any niggling doubts that I have, until a satisfactory idea eventually manifests.
