    Its very nice

    Although the bicep on the left arm (his left) seems to go away to long down on the arm.
    Also I think his hands is abit to small.
    And then, on the back muscle, that goes forward to the stomach seems to be abit incorrect.

    Anyway
    Awsome rendering...

    You might make some wider hips aswell, but not sure about that



    Now this is a finished piece...so please Dozzie..shut up


    Keep the good work up!

    dozzie - thanks man. as far as anatomy and proportions goes - i worked from a ref. tried to follow it as tight as possible.
    but i guess some incorrections might happen in the process.

    Hey, Chuck,mate. Are you really Chuck or Pat in a real life?
    Very young Minotaur, full of energy, I like him very much. Especially I like those glowing purple eyes, they look intense.
    Why all the images of Minotaur remind me bodybuilders instantly? There is always something very determined and close minded about them (Minotaur images, I mean). Well, anyway, I like the image, especially his shoulders, hair texture and the serious expression of his snout. I like the lighting from the second light source, nicely done.
    The only note about his hands, they are not very expressive, and I heard that in portrait they are second most important part to pay attention. Right now it's nothing much to say about them , except they look vaguely done.
    Now do you plan to paint his girlfriend? could be fun, if she is into sport too.

    woa, it's a little weird at first, with the whole giant torse thing going on but when you look at the taur for a while it looks very cool. I really like the cow like head and the way you lighted this beast. Do you have a non-canvas textured version?

    nice one, i think the disproportion and stuff kinda works for the piece not against it, although bigger forearms and hands would definitely make it look even better. i love the lighting, simply love it

    Chuck, looks great! I'm not really digging that background texture but everything else looks good.

    Coincidentally, I made a similar image a short while back:

    Great minds think alike! -J

    Great stuff. The waist, as I believe has been mentioned before, should probably be bigger. I'm not a big fan of the texture myself, and the sudden lack of that texture surrounding the horns really annoys me.

    But yeah... fantastic rendering. Veins are cool.
