I love the direction of this piece. The defender's grip and imposing posture (he's standing upright, even facing down a vicious beast leaping right at him) show determination while his eyes and clenched teeth show his reluctant, albeit primal, fear of his attacker. Many artists try to portray their characters as 100% stalwart in the face of danger and that can get a little boring because it's unrealistic. Showing both sides of the conflict in the same medium is a subtle yet powerful difference that shows a lot of skill and emotion on the artist's behalf, not to mention the emotions it stirs in their audience. Great job!

Thank you for the thoughtful and eloquent compliment, I appreciate it immensely! Yes, I think a bit of vulnerability makes us relate more to the character, glad it shows through! *hihgfive!

This is an amazing piece of work, however, I think the front arm is proportionally too short, do you agree? Or is he a dwarf?
