 Great piece.  His right forearm isn’t quite as the forearm looks like we’re seeing it front on, but the upper arm looks like we’re seeing it side on.  The hand on his right also isn’t quite right - the pinky and thumb look like they’re truncated as well.  And a shadow beneath the head to match the lighting on the chest would be nice.  Also, the horns look to be a duplicate of each other, but that sets the perspective as slightly off.

Overall it’s a superb drawing.

Holy wall of crit. Love it!

I see what you mean on the lightsource. I always been going it with definition & depth being more important that the lightsource. Don't know why. I'll try and work on that in the future. With the colors, I like them more softer, it's just my style of doing it. Thanks for the C&C Cilein.

His right arm could do with shading on the left to match the lighting you'uve use on the rest of the piece, (see the difference in face and that arm). The pinky on that hand looks stuck on too, and really short. The horns are both pointing 100% to the left, whereas his head is at a 3/4 angle, making them look oddly rotated, rotate them clockwise about 45 degrees to fix. It's down to personal preference, but because of the way you have shaded and the style I think a darker or/and thicker outline around the whole character might look swell. The most important flaw though is that you have mixed light sources, the torso and head are lit from a different side to the arms and lower body! A tad more contrast in the reds would help with depth and define the features better but look's like you've made excellent progress already, I hope you find time to work on it more, it's good pixelling so far.

Oh and as for fur, a tuft here and there of the darker browns would look nice :), similar to how you made the join between abdomen and legs but flipped upside down and in random areas.

Edit: Did a quick revamp to highlight some of what I mean;"

Oh, I see. I tried fur,but it didn't come out too well.

shadix (Level 1 Thug) @ 3/16/2011 07:11

it seems flat to me

it needs more deepness

AfroMonkey (Level 2 Dealer) @ 3/14/2011 11:53

What do you mean by too even?

shadix (Level 1 Thug) @ 3/14/2011 11:23

the red is awesome and in some parts very cool details

but the brown is to even

AfroMonkey (Level 2 Dealer) @ 3/14/2011 11:07

Added the finger and fix some it has been edited. lol

Thanks Manuz and Statis

 I really like the color choice and usage.

The only thing that bothers me are the hands, while the muscles are really well done!

Stasis (Level 2 Corporal) @ 3/13/2011 22:33

I'm wondering if you've edited this since the comments mentioning a lack of detail. It looks well defined, but very clean. I dig it, except the arm on the left looks a little misshapen, and it looks like he has four fingers on that hand and five on the other.

AfroMonkey (Level 2 Dealer) @ 3/13/2011 19:53

I didnt know how to give it the wrapping feeling that was intended.

Thanks everyone. dont feel like responding to each one.

AfroMonkey (Level 2 Dealer) @ 3/13/2011 19:50

Yeah, the arms are a bit weird looking. On the hands, I forgot to shade in the other hand...whoops. Thanks Tenshi.

Demon11777 (Level 5 Captain) @ 3/13/2011 19:22

 Wow I love the style. Only thing that bugs me is that the horns look flat.

ellie-is (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 3/13/2011 18:51

 Epic stuff, man. Love it.

GringoScariott (Level 1 Thug) @ 3/13/2011 18:18

 I like the way you did the arm muscles and the face. Pretty good man, faved =]

Hiuru (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 3/13/2011 17:37

 Wow, this is very cool! I feel like you could have shown more detail though, like Dumbo said. Maybe a highlight here and there to emphasize the muscles etc. Either way, awesome job!

dumbo (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 3/13/2011 16:58

Very cool character design. Just wish there was more detail work on something like this. Although I don't know what the contest rules are.

Anywho... Faved!!!

t3nshi (Level 5 Soldier) @ 3/13/2011 16:28

 cool, I like his face. The muscles of the arms are a little strange thought, they seem like they're twisted, and I don't like his hands. Plus, he's got 3 fingers on one hand and four on another one. still I like it, keep it up :3
