Very cool seeing a work in progress. The challenge for the artist is that it shows flaws before they're resolved. Clearly you're still working on it, but what is noticeable is that his back teeth should go back more. I would guess that there was a flash on the camera and it's showing places that one normally does not see unless you're a dentist. So as artists, we correct those kinds of things. I think they can really be put back into the shadows more because the bicuspids are defying depth and coming forward. Are they necessary to see?

Anyway, the overall is great and yes, it's exciting to see a work in progress so that we can get inside the artist's head and see how it's done. Very generous. Thanks Danny.
