What advice would you give someone starting this project? Become extremely familiar with your models facial features and be very patient

I love this. The face says to me. Like it was an older man and you were asking. Please let me sketch you. He was kind of annoyed but then said alright but do it right. Its great. The use of color is so wonderful. I would hang this on my wall. Looks like an ikea picture. Great

When I see work this good, I realize that there is no hope for me as a portrait artist. I need to stick with still life.
