Man, I'm going to be..  crass here because quite honestly I'm tired.

I like this piece and it's very cool - tight inks, not so tight anatomy.  Torso/rib area construction is kinda messed up.   Difficult pose?  yes.  Great effort?  Absolutely.

There's also a few other things I'm perceiving as anatomical issues.  Maybe it's just me, but I see a few things that are bothering me. 

Could I do better without a reference?  In some parts, maybe, in other parts, no. 

Love the design, and the way the face is done.

This is really nicely done; the tight line work from afar does what it's really meant to: add greys to an image to produce midtones.  Tight work man! :)

Okay - anatomy and construction aside - this is great inking and I encourage you to submit it to the Inkwell. ;) :thumbsup:

:)  I may consider it.  I don't think inks are my strong suit.  Then again, what do I know. :P

Well, really, James - it's about the piece, not the artist.  So if a piece holds its own or shines next to it's neighbors in a gallery, what's wrong with that?  Take some time to review the galleries and you'll agree that Alpha Red Smash is well suited to display in Featured.  Now, whether it will be accepted on its merit is another story.  But I don't see why it wouldn't be.  In fact, I think the administrator (it's just Jeff, now . . . I left) would love to talk shop with you.

Worse that could happen is that the piece is put back where it is . . . no.  Not really.  Since I accepted it, the worse that could happen is that it's rejected completely.  Oi.  Well . . . think about it.

Inks aside (bravo BTW) - you gotta get under the skin and learn what's going on with the bones and muscles, because that's what dictates the changes in shape and, more importantly, it's where the rhythm comes from. 

Major distortion of the ribcage in this position.  It's a solid mass, but you have it facing one way at the top and another way at the bottom. No-no.  Throws off the lines of the musculature which in turn throws off the rhythm.
