Thank you for all the feedback! I tried to get rid of those vertical lines... I couldn't find a way of making the hair/beard
particularly snarly. It's straight, but some of the lines are gone.

When it comes to lighting, I imagine that the light source is coming from the upper left corner. I just imagine it like that,
but if you think that giving the surroundings color would help, I will try that. I tried identifying some shapes, and I found some
triangles here and there... That's an interesting approach and I will keep it in the back of my head.

The smaller canvas example is quite clever, but then I would have to start all over. Maybe I should do that just in order
understand what I'm looking for?

I tried adding some lighter colors to the beard to give it that effect of "hairs" glistening in the light, but it looks like he's been
lying on his bed drinking milk or something.
