This is so gorgeous. I love the color, lighting and textures in this. Makes me want to do a self portrait as well.
First off, your self portrait is very realistic looking, and I would assume that it looks alot like you. I love the use of color hinted in your shades of brown, and also the hilights and shadows on your face add emphasis that draws the viewer in.
The only slightly nevative thing that cought my attention was that the top of your hair seems more grey and toned out than the rest of your work. It's a little hard to look at because of the grey, but then that just adds more emphasis on your face. If it was purposeful or not, it ends up working out in the end, maybe even enhancing your work, so I wouldn't worry about it.
All in all, I was very impressed.
If this is a self portrait then you must be beautiful as well. Exquisite art, very impressive!
