Your work is nothing short of impressive and articulate, and I'm glad to see that you used the color of the paper as a pleasant mid-tone for the entire work.

May I asked how you managed to scan this piece? Clearly this is a huge sheet of charcoal paper.

Thank you! I feel as though the piece does look a bit crooked, but I'm really glad you like it! Its actually not that big, though I did originally plan to do a huge piece for it. Its about the size of an A4 paper--but just a teeny tiny bit smaller--which explains how I got to scan it.

If you're curious as to how other people upload big sized works I know most just take a high quality picture of it in good lighting. Hope that helps!

I took a look at the original picture and I think you matched the reality really well with your drawing. I love the effort you took to really accentuate the wrinkles and shades, as it does in the original picture. All in all, a great work.
