Very good portrait. But I think the arm is bothering, it feels like it belong to someone else... Is it the shoulder? the elbow? the angle of the forearm? Something....

This is a beautiful drawing. In reply to Claudiav about the angle of the arm, it seems to me it might be just an unusual angle to begin with. I wonder though, if the perspective would make more sense to the eye if you added more shading, especially in the middle of his chest to show a slight curving inward, and to the outer edge of the raised arm (the side further from his face). Overall, quite remarkable though!
