Selfportrait (again...)

I just finished this selfportrait. Took some time..
I tried to achieve a more traditional look with some nice fleshtones. Realism is still quite difficult for me, I tend to stylize colors and facial features.
I have mixed feelings about the pose, it makes me look a kinda arrogant. Hank said that it looks like I'm working very concentrated, which was definitely the case..
I wish I could achieve something like this with real colors.

Anyways, it feels great to get back into the painting groove, I've been slacking hardcore over the last couple of weeks.

Edit: Ok, now I've changed and uploaded this pictures three times, I changed the nose, the eyes and the lips.. I'm getting tired of this.
