questa volta il commento lo lascio in inglese :)
this piece of art is really nice. Especially I like the lower half, the contrast between the black signs and the blue colour. From the compisition point of view it works well. this side view of the face and the (more or less) "horizontal" blue spot make cool effect. an idea of movement of the thought: form something "heavy" in his head to a "lighter" perspective in his future...
one question (if I can): which kind of show did you do in Milan?
(I hope that my English results clear and correct)

This work is beyond beautiful. The mixtures of cool colors in the paint against the pencil is a very nice contrast. I love how you added texture by shading and adding splatter marks. The curves of the face are beautifully drawn. I love how you mostly didn't paint over the eye, making it more prominent. Something you could have worked on, depending on what look and feel you want to go for, is making the hair and lines stand out more in the painted areas. On the left side, the shading and details are shown better than the right where the hair almost disappears under the paint. And it took me awhile to notice that beautiful ear. I love how you highlighted the strand of hair next to his ear. That would be a nice touch for the hair on the back of his head. Other than those little details this piece is truly magnificent.
