Embarrassed to say I didn't realise this was Russell Crowe at first - perhaps it's because he's smiling! ;)

I love the fact that not only are your works technically brilliant, but you add warmth & character to them, bringing them alive :aww: Great laugh lines around the eyes, the stubble works well and a wonderfully quintessential quiff!

Can't list them all but you missed out the controversial 1992 film 'Romper Stomper' he starred in.

I have no real constructive comments on this one. Great likeness, well rendered textures from his hair to his shirt, and even his beard. Are there greys in there? .. Very clean. I take it that some of the darker stroke clusters on his jacket reflect actual tonal changes..? The only possible thing I might add detractively, (and I'm not sure it's not just my eyes) does his skull seem long to you? ...or is it just his hair? I swear I'm not just trying to find something wrong. And don't you even think of trying to change anything on it! Fantastic drawing!
