Nice experiment. I do not think that this kind of PP suits a portrait, because I find it very graphical and as such much more suited to be applied to an icon or something symbolic. (Compare it to some Che Guevara t-shirts and stuff like that – it is a bit the same idea but the difference is that Che is an icon)

So your work could easily be used in a campaign for adoption (the title could be “where are my parents”) and as such it is great – and merits the smiley. But I would not use it for a portrait in the traditional sense.
Hope you can use this feedback.

P.S. It is well done - nice work

Hi Brandon,
Well I actually like this image and think the PP works fine. Very simplisitc image and as stated by Nicolas very graphic. Composition is very strong and you have caught a good expression on the boys face.
