Hi Matt,

Have made the changes you suggested ie darkening the eye socket and around the side of his face.  As for the beard on a positive note it’s  better than some of my previous attempts, so that’s progress.   I now know why I struggle with beards/fur/grass etc.  I basically can’t see the wood for the trees, although I try hard to simplify I get somewhat overwhelmed and drawn in by all the detail.  As a consequence felt I didn’t really have a clear idea where I was going with it which is reflected in the finished piece which bears little resemblance to his actual beard.  But hey it’s a start and I tried my best.  Look forward to your comments.  Many thanks
