im sure you have noticed his arm is bent at a physically impossible angle, but those things are easilly worked out.
painting or drawing in 2D on a 3D surface is quite a challenge, and this kicks ass for your 1st attempt.
cant wait to see more.
awesome appreciate the comments. About the arm this is actually the way the ref pic looked if because of the height of the shoulder pads the arm when raised up just appears to be coming out at an odd angle but I do see your point.
