And now this was something else entirely! :D The lack of lines works so well here! Great shading, texture and detail. The shirt, the strands of the beard, it's both natural and stylized, and colors and shapes blend together nicely. The form's great, if anything's a bit strange maybe the nose and ear (no swirl?), and lips a bit dim/flat, irises too, maybe they could have a bit more 'life' to them, but at a glaze: looks perfect! IMO your style works well here, and the lack of black outlines is refreshing, though it'd probably look good with those too.
Thanks, Bob! Indeed, i put a lot effort here to find good reference (Simon Cottee himself) pick soft but bright colours, and try to leave zone of comfort. It is kinda works! Yes not perfect, you see troubles and me too. Anyway Simon (Australian english Simon= "Slyman") was pleased with this work.
About leaps, ears e.t.c - need to improove volume and face structure/ proportions.
About my style - this is very bad for me as young artist, because it means that I break same art rules everytime.
