The use of value and hue in the face is great. Even after the original sketch lines are removed, the planes of the face hold up. I like that the background on the left is grey against the skin tones, and on the right is red against the dark hair and shaded area of the hat.
I like the way that you constructed the person's face with planes! Try activating the color more though it seems a bit dull :)
This is a really great caricature! I like how you played with leaving the lines in and the rim lighting on the suit is very nice! I wish you had pulled it in a bit more on the hat and face, though, because they don't have as much contrast in their rim light as that. I also think that a bit more reflection of that red onto his right side could really have given this a great depth!
aw yeah love the way that paper color is used. great facial expression. I feel that maybe the black smoke is better for this piece. the white is so intense
I really like how you stylized this piece. You've done a wonderful job showing all the shapes you've put into his face with the shading! I almost wonder if you could've pushed it even further- adding in more darks like the one you have under his chin, to the right side of his face? Just an idea.
I love the way you rendered his skin, it fits the personality of the caricature well. maybe just push the shadow/highlights further for even more drama.

I like how stylized your portrait is, good detail on the skin wrinkles and cigarette. You could maybe even push the contrast a little bit more on the underside of the hat and chin
This is the classical detective face, everyone wants to be this cool guy that gets shit done. lol Nice work in capturing the mood of the character!
You did a great job with all of the dented-in areas of his skin. I love the way yoer' pulling in the color from the bkgrd i nthose spaces. It looks really nice and helps turn his face in all of the wrinkly bits. I also think you did a great job differentiating between shallow concave face parts and then the really tight creases of his forehead. Really nice job with that! I think it would be cool to see how you could use that same effect on the other parts of his body, like bring in some reflected light / color into his suit -- or maybe add a little red cherry on the end of his cigarrette?? Yo ustart to do it wit hteh lights and darks, now push it with adding some blues, or another light source that adds a cool color - kind of like how you'er adding the hot white light to the side of his face! Really nice stuff. This is a lot of fun.
