Its a good painting. You obviously have tallent.

Stating that it was a Biblical painting through me off. I'm not shure what symbolisim the giant, naked man is and the fact that he seems to be in distress upon stepping onto the city.

Joking aside, your technical ability is quite good...attention to anatomy is always a good thing. It looks like you turned a basic pose in painting classs and painted the scene around him to spice it up.

Your decision to give him a modern haircut? And I don't exactly like the squared-off piece in the upper left hand corner (where his hand is in) only because it is too alligned with the edge of the canvas. That then makes the eye collaborate it with the actual canvas, breaking the flow.

Basically, I wish you would explain more the idea behind the piece.
