Can I answer? Can I?
I believe it’s just perfect, really, because:
The anatomy is stylized just as the whole character and I believe the “awkward” origin of the biceps mirrors the design and works beautifully to accentuate it! I would be willing to make a bet that this artist could make “real” anatomy with very little effort, but that wasn’t the task.
The “strong fill light” looks to me like a rim light and doesn’t require a shadow in this kind of depiction, while the actual fill light coming from the front does produce the very artistic shadow behind him. It ends up becoming visually so pleasing, that 5 stars pop up for the rating immediately and even I had to give them.
However, it’s sometimes important to understand your style more than anyone’s reality. I myself try to paint based on logic very often and it’s both my lack of skill and my lack of patience that often corrupt my painted work. In this guy’s case I’m very sure that he has both skill and patience to do practically what he wants and he’d have to show more severe mistakes, in my opinion, to prompt real cricism…well…although I’m very sure he’ll appreciate constructive ideas.
Just my 2 cents… :shrug:
Again, amazing stuff!
