Your brother has succeeded in looking a bit off, and you have succeeded in capturing it!

The facial expression has a lot of deformation in it, and you have succeeded in drawing these deformations accurately. The stretching of the skin, the foreshortening of the face, the interior of the mouth, ears well done (one of those things so often neglected and drawn poorly) all done wonderfully.

Good work

Hm... I don't know what to say, I mean in terms of skill level it's really really good but (and I don't mean to be rude) it's not a very pleasant portrait of your brother, or is that the intention, coz he looks like a zombie from dawn of the dead or resident evil...

Grodonm thank you for your compilments. ervine, Hmm...I think your right as far as this picture goes, but I think we all can make ourselves look like zombies if we try hard enough, and have the right camera angle...and that was his intention when the photo was taken.
I just get bored sometimes of drawing us at our most flattering times. and thank you.
