    I really like what you have so far, in a gestural fine art way it allready looks finished, but i would sugest clearing up some grey areas such as the face, I dont know what direction it is facing, I wouold sugest you have something like a prifile, it will add to the power of the silioute. also I would like to see you emphasis the ribcage and conetcting sartorious musscles to emphasis the strain and emotion you character conveys. if you continue to paint it try uping wash layers to preserve the energy of the drawing

    Man, I don't know why, but I suck at gesture drawing. I guess I'm too anal to scribble out like that.

    I like that pose a lot. Good job.
