It comes across as more of a beast with the under-slung jaw, and protruding mouth. Interesting effect. Though bestial in habit, I've always ascribed an air of nobility to their form. There's something about their lithe grace, and smooth skin that I find elegant. Touching on that the textures on the head in particular are superb. Excellent use of the monotone, just barely nuanced by the blues and browns. Topped off it seems with very slight scarring and pockmarking. Certainly an effect worth studying.
