Hey Guys, I should let you all know I do not like bull fighting at all! I do however like matador art...I've always wanted to do one. My zodiac sign is Taurus the bull...the matador is someone who can tame the bull, someone I would like to be sometimes!

  This is a great piece of art, the composition is absolutely awesome, I love the colors and the movement. I don't like the asymmetry on the bull's horns though.

 On the other hand, I am not into any kind of unnecessary torture towards any creature.

Nice work, I would suggest that the sword be thinner, it looks somewhat medieval and matador's swords are thinner I believe.

Looks awesome!
I have a little critique if you don't mind ;)
I would suggest to change his arm holding the sword. It looks like it just hangs there relaxed. Now I understand that the matador HAS to be calm to face that pice of muscles. But I doubt that he would let it hang in reach of the horns. So my suggestion is to mirror the arm, making it hug the body (take his shoulder and the point of the sword, mirror it on that line). This way it would make more sense and show his bodycontroll. It would also make more sense compositionally as it would add an additional frame to the circle (matador + bull) and also emphatize the dynamic of the whole picture.

Hope that was helpfull! :)
