Is there a specific name for this type of portrait other than "light and shadow" portrait?

I thought this was a photograph! The only crit I can give is the hair looks a little muddy when in comparison to the rest of the figure.

Yeah that's mostly because i had dreads when the source photo was taken for this painting, although i agree with you there could have been more detail in it all the same.

Thanks for your comment.
