This is for a monthly art competition on a website called Penciljack. Basically a ladder system , each month ppl are paired up and pic a topic, then at the end of the month the art is voted on by the forums members kinda like COW here i think. This month was Conan, Here is my entry, thought get some unbiased feedback.
The drawing is still a WIP.
First off, I would definitely look at more photographic references of snakes about to strike. The snake's upper palette and lower jaw look really flat/squashed, and the skull's structure looks a bit off.
Conan's body looks a bit stunted, like the proportions look more suited for a character who is a classic D&D dwarf then a human barbarian character. I would also definitely push the expression on Conan's face. The situation is intense, but his facial expression just seems to be one of mild inconvenience.
