Stating the obvious, this is a gorgeous black and white shot that makes excellent use of the environment and what I presume to be natural lighting. Despite my natural inclination to dislike portraits wherein the figure is placed dead center, I find myself enjoying this one.

There is a good relationship between the negative space (and the texture) and the figure that helps to create a strong impression. The figure seems bold, sturdy, much like his environment. There is some good metaphorical play between his rock-hard abs and the stone on which he stands.

The only thing that I take issue with in this composition is the fact that the model is wearing underwear. I think that it contrasts too sharply with the natural feel of the rest of the picture, and I think he would have benefited from being entirely in the nude.

Then again, maybe he's not meant to be entirely one with his surroundings. There is also the model's comfort level to consider - perhaps he didn't want to be in the nude. I'm only speaking from an outsider's perspective. Regardless, I enjoy this piece, and it was a <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/p/p…" width="15" height="16" alt=":+fav:" title="+fav" /> well-earned.

The shading on the wings is very clean and crisp, as is the hair, which is really quite difficult to do with remappable portraits. I'm also a fan of the overall structure of the face. The shape of the eyes is quite good, but I feel like some of the perspective is lost on the glasses. The glasses look slightly "bent," if you know what I mean.

The freckles are great, and the nonremappable shirt design is a very unique touch. However, I feel like this is lost on the shading of jacket/overshirt. While the hair and wings display precision and good form, the shirt looks a bit rushed and sloppy. The neck is also a bit flat in shading, which looks odd in contrast to the soft shading of the wings and shirt, where you used more gradients.

Clothing folds are very difficult to master. I recommend having someone modeling for you so that you can have a reference to work from. When I work, I surround myself with my references so that I'm working from observation. Drawing from observation rather than imagination is one of the best ways to obtain a sense of realism in your work. Keep at it! <img src="e.deviantart.com/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)" />
