He doesn't look a very happy apprentice monk. Beautifully captured shot.

Plenty of expression in the face in this portrait, concentration in the eyes, and pursing of the mouth, very good indeed, regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

An excellent portrait, Debu, and such a young novice. How do they get their hair like it is? Carol

A superb piece of quite emotive portraiture, those eyes seem to be filled with so much grief, its almost a pitiful sight.

Agree with others he looks very sad, excellent portrait but some artifacts showing through from the cut out, it is very difficult to cut out strands of hair, so well done Debu.
