Awesome posing, makes this look very dynamic. You can almost feel it move.

This piece exudes dynamic energy. It reminds me of the 1990s classics.

Hello there! You have been visited by a Critique Ninja! We stealthily roam the site, looking to leave thoughtful and useful criticism, as per the spirit of CRITmas. Mind if I just hop on to business, then? Just swooping in and out again - that is the Ninja way...!

First things first: I see your work popping up now and then in the groups I follow for some time now, and I have to say your progress is hard to miss! Your range of values is richer, your poses more daring (^ case in point). I'm happy for you!

But since this wouldn't be a critique if I didn't have anything more useful to say than praise, here are a couple of things I think leave some room for improvement:

for starters, but if you want to keep your foot down and call in a 'personal preference' I understand that, I think you went a little overboard with muscle mass - in the upper arm, specifically. It is enormous, compared to his face.
The leg I can deal with - he's holding it up like that, pumping that quadriceps (which is already a big muscle) so naturally, it should look pretty thick. But that gigantic bicep, to me, is a bit too much. That whole upper arm looks, upon closer inspection, like there's been some oversight. I think the deltoid is supposed to go between the tricep and bicep, but let me find a link or two for you: Arm Construction Notes.
www.google.be/imgres?imgurl=ht…

The other thing that looks 'off' is the nearer hand looking not as big as the suggested perspective (when I look at the faraway hand and the size of the huge arm I talked about above) asks for. But the faraway hand is problematic in another way, also: it, and its sword do not really overlap, or aren't really overlapped by anything, so there's no way of quantifying how far away it is, exactly: it only makes a subtle tangent with the outlines of the cloak (which is something artists should avoid, ideally: tangents confuse the eye and make a composition harder to read. So if you're not going to have overlap, try to leave enough space between, at least).

That's all I have, really. I hope I didn't come across as being overly harsh.
Have a wonderful 2018!

Thanks for your critique. I've already discussed the right arm with one of my friends and he showed me the same arm examples :D (Big Grin)
Made note about left hand.Nod

Yeah arms are my personal bane as well when drawing (which is FUNNY because 'bane' is pronounced exactly like the dutch word for 'leg'!)

Cheers!
