Nice work! You're right in that the immediate observation is how manly the image looks, and I wondered if this is really what you look like. If so, congratulations on being very manly. Otherwise, in isolation and as a character portrait, this is very well done! Great features, nice mix of colors and understanding of shade and highlights and where to put the detail. The nose is a little extreme, and the lower left side of the jaw and left side of the face could come in a bit. You've done well, I look forward to seeing what else you can do, so keep it up!
