This is really amazing!  The detail is lovely, the cards look so realistic and a lot of work must have gone into that!

At the risk of repeating what everyone else has said....WOW !! ....WOW
Cant really add to that. Just that if this is one of your first projects I can not wait to see what you will be doing in a few years. Sure hope that you are an art major.

Sure hope that you are an art major.
I am now, and will get my BFA at the age of 41. I was in the Engineering field for 15 years (+3 years of college studying Engineering) because I didn't think it would be "practical" to go to art school.  I really wish I'd followed a different path and gone to art school to begin with, but at least I'm doing it now. Before attending art school I drew with a #2 pencil, pens and markers and that was it (other than crafting).  Painting (oil and watercolor), colored pencil drawings and sculpting are all new to me still.  I LOVE it!

 Shocked  Wow!  This is very well done.  I love the wrinkles on his face and shirt.  Nicely done.  Holy cow.

This is amazing, wow, just wow! The detail is amazing, the cards look so good I thought you used real cards and made him super small.

This is amazing. The details are fantastic and clearly you have the knack for it.

From one art (sculpture) major to another - this rocks!

i went and had a look at your profile and if i'd recognised your username i wouldn't have been surprised by the amazingness of this piece.  the others that you have posted (in your favorite own projects) are all extremely memorable!

i think you have made absolutely the right decision with the plan to be a professional artist, because you seem to have the right combination of skill/ideas/drive to actually make it work. 
i say this as a vaguely artistic person who almost went to art school and didn't, and i think that was right for me because i don't have that combination for art (i seem to somewhat be developing it for my actual profession, though, so that's ok).

creative criticism always appreciated!

That's incredible - you have a serious talent for sculpting.  He is amazing - his face and his hand are so expressive, and the whole thing is beautifully painted.  The effect of water on the cards is amazing.  Even his shirt and tie are incredible.  And of course the concept is so clever.  Wow.  This seriously rocks.
