He's(?) beautiful Ray.  :smitten: I'm thinking possibly a bit more variation in the values to give better separation between the face and the leaves.
Cheers, Val

Ray,

Delight orang.  Agree with Val on extra values to make the orang pop behind the foliage.

 :thankyou: Val and Mea
for your comments I think the camera brought out to much light in this picture because the original drawing is not as light in color I will try and take a better photo during the day but your criticism is very helpful.

 :thankyou: Danielle. For your encouraging comment I do hope they like it, I hope to get it too them this weekend

Ray
Kindest regards
