Looks pretty good.

Here is tips:

As you work consider the stages of curing to influence the putty in different ways. You must use very light touches to coax the putty into shape and move from general shape to specifics. For example, after about 30-45 minutes you can use a fine tool to indent texture into the beard hairs which will deform the shapes less if you indent it earlier in the curing process. That works pretty good for doing folds and stuff- you can smooth out the "fabric" and rougher shapes and then later push in and smooth the folds.

It's helpful to start with an armature with some shapes in the under-sculpture to help have some form to work against as you're sculpting the outer layer.
