This is gold! Excellent manipulation of the grotesque; i was put off my lunch by this image (in the best possible way).
It kinda reminds me of how I imagine a particular character from a novella I'm writing...
I think its that almost wry grin, the nonchalant vacant expression combined with the fact we can't see the subjects eyes...

The melting effect to me looks almost as though a veil is forming, perhaps from a pva or glue-like substance. Particularly around the eyes.
Great work once again

A) Quick! Get that man a coffee! Stat!

B) See, I told you the pigeons were...

C) After a 2 hour meeting with the boss, Phil finally had enough.

D) A dipped kiddie treat in Papua New Guinea.

OK, comments aside, that is amazing. It looks more like a photoshopped picture than a charcoal drawing. The textures, shadows, highlights, the list goes on. Thank you so much for sharing.
