oh wow you got his features to the smallest detail! Having tried to draw him myself (and having so many difficulties to do so ) this is impressive! His face structure is fascinating but so damn hard. I think I'd have to draw 100 portraits of Mads and by the end I would still struggle with the ressamblance.
Can I ask what is your painting/drawing style? (ugh english is failing me) I mean, your sketch, do you do it freehand, or get all the face panels in place (I don't remember if this is how it's called), or have other way of getting the features so well? Thanks :)

Thank you very much, you're sooo kind!!Heart
Yeah, you're right, Mads has a particular face structure, and it's quite hard to capture in a painting. Especially his lips, they're such a struggle for me Sweating a little...
Well, I don't have an elaborate painting style, I guess, I just sketch the shape of the thing I want to paint first and then I start give it colour little by little; it's like sculpting, you continue to give it intensity until it looks realistic and you're satisfied with it :) (Smile) 
anyway, I do my sketches freehand usually, but to get the right proportions I sometimes overlay the photo that I want to paint on the canvas ^^ it helps me a lot :)
Thank you very much for posting this comment, I hope I expressed myself correctly Hug

you're more than welcome :)
Mads is hard to capture in everything :( his lips his cheekbones his eyes his (none)eyebrows his nose, every thing. It's so frustrating. The only drawing I managed to finish of him took me 2hours sketching and 3h shading, The new drawing I'm trying to make has already taken me at least 2 hours and he still doesn't look like Mads at all argh
I draw freehand as well, so yeah, I guess I'll just have to keeeeeep drawing him until I learn that fascinating structure.
Thanks a lot for the reply :)
