Oh. My. Goodness.

That is absolutely remarkable, the lips and the eyes give the impression he is about to break into tears and the shading is so subtle.

What a tribute to such a musical God!

Coool :D I love the eyes esp :D it s got the 'wet' realistic look, i m still trying to get that, but not yet :P

Subtractive technique? Whats that ^^; ?

Subtractive is where you lay down a gray tone with the charcoal first... on the entire peice of paper, and then use an eraser to get the lighter tones. It's hard, but effective.
