an elderly curmudgeon, Rokly Wang (3D)

Title: an elderly curmudgeon
Name: Rokly Wang
Country: Korea (South)
Software: Maya, mental ray, Photoshop, ZBrush

Hi all, It is the first time that I upload my stuff on CGtalk!
I'd like to share a piece I've been working on for a while now.
It's an attempt at a realistic portrait and I want to express him as an elderly curmudgeon.

Modeled in Zbrush. Texturing in Zbrush and Photoshop. Retopologized in 3DCoat, Rendered in Maya using mental ray, and the hair is using Maya hair system.

Thank you for watching.

(comments/critique welcome)

I have corrected everything you have pointed out

This image is top notch - great skin, amazing shader on eyes, excellent fabric, remarkable details - my only tiny comment on this would be the hair; specifically the top hair where there is somehow a bit of uniform strands going on. The rest of the hair are excellent, though - but other than that, two thumbs up

Very impressive. Skin sculpting/modeling/texturing/shading is excellent. Beard is also very good.

I think the scalp needs some soft shadow from the hair.

Very very good.

I like squint!

Awesome work,the character is very realistic,but I am quite agree with NocturnalEyes and TheEmptyRoom,the hair still needs more work.I believe it will become a great work.Can't wait for the finished result.

Love your picture. Amazing textures specially on the face. Area between the neck and shirt is a bit strange, like cutting with scissors or someting like that, maybe shadows could be used to fix it.
