This is beautiful and ugly at the same time, but I think that's the point...the subject is a grizzled and decidedly dark man, and the dirt on the armor and the scars on his cheeks captures that perfectly.
Its also beautiful, the bright purples and pinks and reds contrast beautifully against the bleak blue and grey landscape.
There's also a great sense of motion and energy, he really looks like an angry man in a fight to the death...and it seems that the viewer may be his target.
The angle is great as well, and off center position of the body.
This is a great work, and I hope that its on some official card, because it should be.
