I don't know if you need to change anything. It really looks like him!

It's a very good likeness.

The shadows look strange in the eyes.

Did you find any decent reference photos of him? I remember looking for some about a year ago but no good profile shots.

That's a VERY good likeness!

There is something a little strange about the eyes, maybe a bit too bright?

strange eyes - now i can't say anything, but i promise to decide this problem :)
2 hrgiger - i found the photos in net, but pics are small and no very good :), also i used video capture from film with Cage

Nice image. No doubt it looks like him.
Personally I find his face rather long.
I would stretch it 90-95% on Y axis.

The modelling is good. The interior of the ear is kind of simple compared to the work done with the mouth and nose. Just tweak it a little inside. The nose is very impresive, very very well done. Also the mouth. the mouth is just missing some vertical lines. You can do that with texture work. Eyes are always difficult, but they are good, they give the look. That is something important, it it recognizable without telling it is Cage.

I woud strongly recomend you to use two area lights of warm and cold sweat colors to light it up. This will give the render a more dramatic effect (a higher warm intensity) and it will make the texture and modelling rock twice as now!!!:)

Great work, please keep it going! It could reach a more impresive level I think :)

I looks like him.....I wonder if this one acts any better? :D
Great job!

Looking again, I think the problem with the eyes is that they are TOO white - tone them down a little and I think it will look a lot better.

Again, it's a good likeness but the eyes are still strange.

Did you turn off all the shadow options for the corneas?
