How do you shade so nicely? I've been trying to get it right for two years but it always looks so bleh and unrealistic

You are soooo good at this! :) The eyes especially are really detailed and wonderfully done, and then the hair..! COOL!
If I were to add any critique to this awesome work, I would have to criticize the fluffiness of the lighting and his skin. It looks like everything is glowing a little, and it looks kind of ... fuzzy? It kind of makes me wonder if you ran it through photoshop?

Anyway, besides that you show true talent as always, and I do believe you're really growing and getting better! :D Always a pleasure to follow your journey as an artist!
