This is going to be a non-biased critique.

The concept around “The Good Savage” may not be as original as some concepts out there, but for the fact that it’s not used hardly ever it allows it’s impact to actually be quite strong. As for who I can presume is our protagonist, this action pose of running through the jungle is decently composed. It looks like he is on the run from something, making sure whatever is behind him keeps off his heels.

His anatomy is good except for a few questionable areas. The pectoral, and abdominal region is a little unclear, kind of muddled. The face and head are over quite good. The eyes might need to be wide open to show expression, eyes closed, and shadowed is a wasted opportunity, the eyes looking alive might help make this illustration pop. The mouth might be best suited to expose his teeth, maybe having him grimace, showing the pain and stress that he is clearly under.

You have defined the body with a bold outline, but the hair hasn’t been, and this makes it kind of hard to visualize it, and that shouldn’t be a problem. But in closing, over all this is a great piece of action. A pin-up that wouldn’t be out of place in a black and white comics magazine from the 1970’s. It is print ready now, in my opinion, but these slight corrections will make it all it can be.

Thank you so much for your wonderful critique, Larry, and when I say wonderful is not for the good things you say (though I always appreciate it) but for those well thought, honest and pondered "punches". That's what I was looking for, and you delivered it my friend!

You are very welcome Antonio. I wanted to give a review of your work as I would if you where to be published(a good thing spinning out of my time reviewing comics). I wanted it to be 100% constructive, and get you to be the best that you can be. Any time you want me to give you my opinion(via comment or note) don't hesitate to ask for one.
