I love the way you used line and triangles to give this portrait something excitingly new. It becomes a sculpture on canvas. Your soft pattern and color choice of the background contrasts so perfectly with the hard edged midas. Wonderful piece of art!

Awesome stuff. Deserves waaaay more views+favs than it has :)

Can I suggest maybe some small adjustments in Photoshop to make the colours 'pop' a bit more and sharpen your linework? I suspect it lost some quality when you took the photo/scanned it (ie maybe it looks even better in RL?).
