First off, AWESOME art! Excellent picture, and great contrast. It really looks like you can see his breath on this cold day. The grey and white background provides a good depth of field, and the texture in his skin is phenomenal. I only have a couple small suggestions to give this piece more impact. Make that dimple line that goes from the right edge of the nostril to the right edge of his mouth a little darker or more defined. That will make his expression look a little more intense. Also, adding a tiny bit of shine to his eye will help boost the intensity and give the piece more impact all around.
Overall, awesome art, and I still can't get over how well done that skin texture is. Awesome work!

Very cool. He's still one of the best defenders in the game after 17 years. Thanks for your compliment and fave.

I saw him tackle a guy by the ankle today with just three fingers from his left hand!
