What attracted me in the details most is the way you have captured his skin. Once can almost feel the smooth slackness and the firm protruding veins, the underlying muscle tone. His face and dignified with that rather dubious expression are captivating, his eyes hold you; the draping of his turban perfect. I have not been to see your work for a few years now and this is absolutely a marvellous turn in your skills. Your "realism" is as perfect as your fantasy work. Top notch portraiture.
