It was strange not seeing it on the frontpage, but I guess the Award puts things back on track
Impressive work, crossing the uncanny valley.

Please tune down the chromatic aberration by at least 50%, it'll still be there, yet, not obvious and "in your face" which detracts from the purely awesome rendering!
This is top notch work on the field of photo realism! I'm loving every pixel of it.

Cette image est si bonne qu'elle mérite que j'en fasse une critique constructive. D'autant plus que c'est toujours un plaisir pour moi de tomber sur de talentueux québécois.
1. The thing that I most appreciate is how much hair there are. It really pays off on the cheeks and the neck.
2. I would have liked it better if the hair wasn't out of focus. It prevents us from appreciating the detail.
3. Despite the fact that the skin shader is very realistic, the skin still tends to look smooth. Especially near shadowed areas.
4. Maybe next time you could texture his scalp with no tan. (I've never seen someone do it.)
5. The shape of the eyes is perfect, they look alive but I think the texture should appear sharper.
6. The ears look a little bland on the picture.
7. Finally, I think there might be a little too much SSS.
Edit: Someone told me I was too severe but it's simply because it's a near-perfect image that I act this way. When it's that good, it's as if the flaws were more apparent. Anyway, why would my word count? I don't even have a portfolio... Whatsoever, it's a 5 stars image and I even posted it on IMDB's Tintin and the Secret of the Unicorn board since I wish the film could look that good and I'm afraid it might not. I hope this clears a few things.

Great work, man!
This is one of the most realistic 3D portraits I've ever seen. The only thing that make your work looking a render is the hair and its integration. The hair is really good, but is not as real as the face. Compare your final image with a version only with eyebrows and beard.
And his eyes... wow, absolutely alive!
***** (five stars, no doubt)
Life is too short to be wasted in front of any screen.
