Walter Pall's main blog about bonsai and his work with trees from day to day. Lots of good pictures of good trees and lots of valuable information about bonsai.
Really great! Apart from the scar-band above the nebari. Have you considered blending it in with the rest of the trunk somehow?
This scar band is typical for this species. it makes the tree look more natural. This is in the fairy tale style. It is supposed to look old and weird and grotesque - not necessarily beautiful. Don't judge such a tree with bonsai rules in mind.
I don't think it looks grotesque. Like I said: to me it looks great. It'll take me some time, though, to get used to the scar band(s). Which is not unusual either, considering that a lot of what I like about bonsai is an acquired taste: in the beginning it was, shall we say, something completely different. ;-)
