You're correct. I suppose I meant it in general.

If it's permissible I would add the following for anatomy. I can easily forgive any inconsistencies in the facial structure because, as we all know, there are many different ethnicities that they do not follow the standard "thirds" and other proportional ratios.

However, the one anatomical inconsistency to work on is "associative muscle" mass. The arms are massive and well done, but the latissimus dorsi muscle would also enlarge, giving the upper body a "fanning out" look that would also cause the shoulders to widen and expand, and the lower abdominal obliques would also puff out if the 6-pack abdominal were worked out to that extent. The trapezius would also have puffed up.

There winds up being a difference between "cut" and "built." Athletic humans tend to keep a relatively thin to medium frame with heavy muscular cuts. Think of it as almost having no skin. Bulking up heavy muscle changes the over-all shape of the human form. My suggestion would be to go to the super market and pick up any copy of any fitness training magazines and look at how overly developed muscles alter the shape and structure of the human form. I used to draw super hero bodies on everyone until I picked up a copy of one of those magazines. It really helped me define my body types. The body types help make characters achieve a certain level of realism.

Other than that, Kris has it spot on. Water colors are an unforgiving art form and you have a a very good handle on it. Keep it up :)

Yessir! Your work on Samuree and Achilles Storm has inspired me for over 20 years (sorry to reveal ages ;) ) I annually go back through them and study line work.  Thanks for being a key part of my development.

Understood.  Quite a number of my friends weren't all that happy i called it quits.  On the bright side, I am trying to return to the 'beginning' as it were. Do some soul searching.  I wish I could say I was happy with what I found. I discovered that my drive to draw was tied to my sexual desire. As I have grown older, my desire has faded.  A part of maturity is moving past one's 'base instinct' and elevate beyond.  So, that is what I am trying to do.  Focus on beauty, technique, and strive for new boundaries.  I suppose when one has spent 35+ years doing art, it never really goes away; it just changes. :)
I finally figured out what it is about your women that is so unearthly appealing. They're "juicy." Your illustrative technique gives them a "juicy" quality. Lucius...tasty....
