Well done!  The cocoa powder is a nice touch...  I can barely get one rosetta done before the cup starts to over flow.

Very impressive.

Any advice for a 6oz cup?  Not sure if I am having too much wrist motion and pour is too fast, have very thin leaves and it is really a cross between rosetta+heart at the moment.

Looks to me as tho your microfoam is a little thin. Try stretching just a touch more.

Mine look like his a lot - thin leaves. But when I stretch more I end up with Capuchinno foam not latte art.

Quick wrist motion/fast pour might be one factor, as is the thickness of the milk.  But another factor in thin, closely spaced leaves is the pressure of the next line compressing the earlier one.  You might also try starting more at the back of the cup and pulling more quickly toward the front as you pour, which will allow the leaves to spread out more with some space in between.
