Sorry to double post, but I'd like to add that I'd appreciate any comments on the drawing, especially constructive criticism. Since it's something a little bit different to what I've done before I'd like to know what you guys think, good or bad.
It's kind of a weird image to start with... I dunno, the photograph doesn't really grab my attention or keep it, looks kind of like a Calvin Klein add from the mid/late 90's.
Your interpretation is an improvement on the original, I'd say. I like that the pants stay in the same color scheme (or lack there of) as in the photograph but the body has been converted into a cool green, I'm not sure about the tattoo remaining grey though, it might look better if the tattoo, being more a part of his body had a more blended color and the nipple ring, being much less so would be grey/silver.
Still your photograph to digital art technique is masterful as always.
I'm really wondering about the roughness over everything, I would expect the signature to be smooth, but it has this interesting roughness about it, it that a product of the brush you used?

I really like this guy. He has similar posture to the young man in AGH's picture. :P I think the rough edges and hatching give it a lot of character.

I prefer the first one, it provokes more feeling, for me at least. Still an interesting design, though.
