Really melancholic. I like his expression.
Black and white always works, right?

Man this is some good stuff. All the wrinkles and cracks in his face really give it personality. :P

Place around the eye is too bright... I think it's just due to the light. Cool beard and eye

I like the details, especially around the eye, but I think you need a little practise still. Try using a lot of references, especially when drawing older people since they are so difficult. Also, try not to push so hard with the pencil, it makes your lines very strong and sketchy in places were they could be softer, and try to blend your shadows a little more. Practise makes perfect, so don't give up, just never forget to try new things and experiment ;)

His skin looks a bit too... almost like his face is made out of wood. Its too hard, too sharp lines.

Very nice and realistic. One way to improve would be to make the shading a bit neater so that instead of seeing the individual pencil marks, the viewer sees a photo-real portrait.
