pretty old piece done in early 2010.
I'm just dumping some stuff in here so you guys have something to look at..
I love the color, but there are a few things that seem off about it. The first is the way that the neck meets the shoulders. It doesn't seem like it blends in well enough and the angles of the shadows at the base of the neck don't match up.
Also, the face seems to be protruding too far out and the head seems to be turned at an unnatural angle.
I'm not entirely sure how I feel about how out of focus the back of the head is. I don't think that it should be that blurry. It makes the face feel like it's not attached, like a mask.

OooOoOps forgot about this piece (made it yesterday)
there we go
The lava seems flat to me and I think it's because you haven't incorporated enough tones and also that it's not blended properly. The texture on it seems to be blotchy and unnatural. It also resembles water too much when it should come off as much more viscous.
You have the reflection/ambient light from the lava on his right arm and face, but nowhere else. It should be present on the rest of his body as well, albeit progressively less prominent as you move to the left.
