James Kirk painting

So since I'm a big TOS Star Trek fan I decided to do a painting of Captain Kirk. It took me few good days and I was really struggling with the nose which shows where I definitely need to focus more. Anyway here's a reference photo I used (it's a screencap from the show, modified by me):


And here is the final illustration:


Since the screencap didn't have the greatest details I had to improvise a little bit in certain areas. Anyway this is the second time I ever attempted serious digital painting, which would focus on likeness. Obviously it's not as similar to reference photo as I would like, but I still count it as success. I learnt a lot during this course, thank you!

(I know I need to work on eyes, nose and ears ehhhh)
