When I saw this piece one thought first came to mind, WOW. Undeniably that would be the first thought in anyone's mind when they see this piece.

Pros:
House has very interesting facial features, which I have felt would be difficult to pull off, but you have done so very beautifully. You captured his gruffness with his graying stubble, which you littered with white and black hairs and it is done very well. There is a balance in the amount of hairs that you put so that it's not overdone and you captured his gruff. His eyes are also very well done, from which in my memory of images of him feel correct as they are a very light color and your eyes go straight towards them. I love the way you created the shadows on his face and neck, they're very soft and realistic. There is also the hair. I absolutely love the hair, when it comes to that it's as if it were hyper realism with the many strands of hair that you drew or erased out. Like with the stubble you didn't overdo the strands of hair and managed to make it very realistic. I also love the bandaids/tape over his mouth, it gives it a playful touch that is very House.

Cons:
Although I love your piece there are some things that I feel you could improve on. I loved how you drew his face and even even his collar, but I felt that maybe his jacket was kind of BLACK and boring, which isn't very House. I don't think I've recalled him wearing black. I think maybe you could have done something with the background rather than leaving it white. Although I love the bandaid/tape over his mouth which made this piece a bit original I still felt that this pose is a bit overused, even with the House advertisements themselves.

Overall
I really like your piece because I feel that you did a pretty good job at capturing the character that is House. Your technique with pencils is awesome and I hope you continue to make amazing pieces.

I think this is a great piece, I can start by saying that the highlights and shadows are placed where they should be. The band-aids covering his mouth are a great addition. As a composition, the little gestures of how his head is slightly tilted and even the way his collar folds helps break this symmetry enough that it isn't a boring or dull piece. I'm by far not an expert on this subject, but I believe you could put some contrast below his left eyebrow. If you notice the shadows under his right eyebrow there is a great sense of that depth that the skull and eyebrow help create around the eye socket. Maybe his left eye could use a little more of that? I am aware of where the light source would be (left side of his face). Last, I would say add something to his suit, it does get a little lost with the rest of the awesomeness.

You are definitively talented and have your own style. If it were me, I would have paid a little more attention to the proportions. Good luck!
