Default Snoopy portrait

I'm not sure where to put this as it doesn't really fit any of the other classifications.

Having gotten lots of beginner lighting equipment for Christmas, I was using the only subject that would sit still long enough for me to play around . Here is my first good portrait shot.

How I took it. Focus placed on the exposed eye. I killed ambient, using a mini octo to camera left exposed for f8 than used a snoot w/ a 16deg grid to give just enough back lighting to separate the head from the black background. PP was only adjusting sliders a bit. No sharpening was added as to keep the soft fuzzy texture of the material

C&C welcome, please explain what you like and don't like or what you would do differently.

For Mr. Pickles if you see this, more to come in the future.
