    Hi there

    Theres some proportional issues, his torso is too short and the way his left arm is positioned makes it look like he has no upper arm. I think the value structure needs to be stronger.. aka the shadows need to be darker. Also check out some reference photos of really buff guys and try to emulate the way the shapes work together.. the abdominal muscles arent just lines drawn onto the torso. So keep those kinds of things in mind. Also it seems like the background was a photograph that you just filled with green to make a silhouette. It clashes with the softness of the figure. So either A. increase the sharpness of the figure in the foreground with sharper edges. Not just the contour, but within the figure as well. His face is very blurry. or B. Make the background softer. Atmospheric perspective comes into play here. The further something is away from the viewer, the softer its edges are going to be.

    Also make the pose a little more practical. Would you hold your arm up in that awkward position while pointing a gun at someone?

    This is a decent start. Spend a little more time on it, fix some of the things I mentioned and it should improve it a bit. Just keep working, keep drawing and dont give up.

    Hey man,

    Nice my friend. I have a few tid bits of advice to speed up your artistic endevors if you'd like. First, like Mingoth said, draw from life, actually just spend ALOT of time drawing period before you jump head first into photoshop. There's no point to paint something if you can't visualize it well to begin with, so start by drawing like mad every day. Look through the forum at the sketch book section, and learn about light and shadow, and how light makes your forms come to life. If you want to do muscle bound dudes, take a look at some anatomy books, there's stuff on the net too. Biggest tip for a beginer, and we all are beginers at some point, is just to draw your ass off. I've got a long way to go my self, so I take what others have learned before me, and try to apply it to my work. Good start, keep it up.

    Cya
