Yeah, that's what I thought, but it doesn't read.  Notice how Mr. Rock's brow forms a connected line, in the portrait it's just one eyebrow up, one down.  I think his right eye should also be open more.

With a character like this expressions need to exagerated slightly more than what you'd simply see in the mirror as it is a cartoon, otherwise you may as well try duplicate an exact image of yourself.

Edit - apparently im making the same expression in my avatar, lol who knew.
I've not got anything interesting to type here..

I think the problem with the expression isnt the eyebrows but the eyes... Mr Rock has the eye to our right closed more than the other one...

This is true. when I raise one eyebrow my other eye sort of closes a bit. Well, I can make it not, but it feels less natural.
