Very energetic. There's loads of chaos. You've described his tensing ready to strike very well.

His right shoulder is rolled forward but his arm and hand are rotated back. I think if you try to put your shoulder and arm in that position you'll see how it's not quite right, his shoulder should probably be pulled and rotated back a bit to make the pose read better.
Everything else is top. I really like the compositional elements that give lines and big shapes.

That's why you bring cats to hunt rats instead of dog/hell beasts.

I'm sorry, probably I should comment with something more relative to the execution of the piece or how I love your work, but I have to ask: How the hell is he gonna swing that blade at the monster wielding it like that? Is he a pirate Rakshasa? An ArrRakshasa?

hehe. You don't have to be sorry. Thank you for your comment.

I totally get what you mean. I'm not super into being too realistic. I rather try to push the anatomy and everything to the edge, so that it serves the point I want to illustrate. Still I'm trying to find balance so that it doesn't look wrong. 

Few people already commented about the arm and sword, so I wasn't as successful here probably. It still doesn't too wrong to me, but I have a higher tolerance to bullshit :D

Well, it is a little bit easy to notice, but all in all it doesn't ruin the experience of the piece.
Plus it makes pathfinder players foam with desire at the tought of the new (imaginary) swashbuckler feat: Rakshasa Grip.
I don't know the mechanics of it but it should have something to do with weirding out the opponent and thus distract him long enough to slice some appendages XD

He kind of looks like Captain Spack Jarrow.

Then again maybe the design for that character was base off of someone too.

Wow, this is gorgeous! The light from the fire is used with such wonderful restraint! It really would have been easy to go nuts with that, but as it is it unifies this image stunningly.
