The rest of the images can be found on my website...

hi and welcome, now I have to say this is damn impressive, the muscle structure is remarkable, the only thing that bothers me is that his thumb looks broken :( , I'm not sure what it is but yet looks odd. other than that the color scheme and everything is nicely detailed..

I would hate to play rugby with this dood :D

I agree. the thumb is set at a bad angle. Also, that forearm is rather out of proportion. Tell him to stop with the forearm curls already! =)

Also, Im not quite sure as to what a rugby player would be doing in that environment. Looks rather rugged, not a place likely to have a game of rugby. =\

team were up against Australia & the

Thanks again!
