Shame, you claim to be a Tolkien fan and yet make such comment!!!

Silmarillion is a book separate and Melkor acts only there; in LOTR he's mentioned only under the later name of Morgoth;

I'm just too passionate when it comes to Tolkien :)

So, I asked what is the connection. Melkor shouldn't look like a mortal man IMO, so I wondered if you have something other in mind...

To my taste, I think the shoulders are a bit to small for his size, and the muscles on the arms are a bit to hard edged..
Other than that, GREAT model! I Love the face!

I agree w/ Stefan: Delta- muscle could be more pronounced to match the rest better, but this is only a minor sugg., the rest seems to be truly above average.

oki i fixed the shoulders and resized them , added some small details like nipples the and a hole in belly (i dont know if there s a specific name given to this)....

They also call it a navel. I think you need to make it more than just a hole. That's just what it is right now, a hole. You need to make it a bit more dynamic than static. Add some organic flesh shape to it, look at how a navel has creases in it as it moves more towards the center.

Also, the clavicle (collar bone) ends a bit prematurely. It should end a bit further over. The best book I've found on human anatomy is:

Human Anatomy for Artists: The Elements of Form
Eliot Goldfinger

It even has 3D forms at the end for reference.

Here's a link to it:

The reason I like this book so well is that it has real pictures with exact illustrations with muscle structure right beside them. Plus it has them in multiple positions and angles. Also, don't pay attention to the sample pages, that's nothing but contents and indexes that they show. The one page that they show with illustrations is probably the worst one in the book. :p

Might wanna tone up the ribs a tad also. Not to the point that it looks like he's in a constant state of flexing though. Someone that big and that muscular should have some definition down there. I don't know if you just haven't made it that far yet though.

Besides that I think the model looks pretty swift.
