Great Capture.

First thing I think of is I am on the receiving end of something evil in the bottom of some Pirate Ship.

Great lighting!

i like it a lot.
i think the most difficult (very difficult..) and important thing in a portrait like this is to get the eye on the far side of the light to also be lit.
your look has lots of power but it would have much much more if the the left eye would be a little shown as well.
Cheers.
Gil.
