... the small amount of stubble on his face really does not do much for him. If it were more, it may look nice. So, I would remove it. Not to the point of looking fem, just to where it looks like a very very slight shadow.
Otherwise, nice job and keep posting !
Good point about the window. I didn't think of that.
He may look better without the stubble, but it doesn't bother me with it.
