    Hm.

    I suppose the most obvious point would be his lack of shoulders, but I think I can see what you're trying to do -- have him be flexing down, if I'm not mistaken? Shoulders hunched over?

    Yep, i think if you tense the muscles on the neck and the shoulders a lot it looks really triangular and the shoulders lower a bit dont they?

    I mean great, you've demonstrated that you don't have a very good understanding of the anatomy of the upper body. Now what?

    OK, how's this...
    Print out you picture.
    Stick it next to a mirror.
    Take off your shirt.
    Stand in front of the mirror so that your body is in as close to the position of your picture as you can get.
    Compare and contrast.
