There's so many things about this picture that are just beautiful. First of all, the feathers on his head... so decorative... and the shell, the shiny hair, and the markings. I hardly know how to crit it... the only thing I can see that needs a little fixing up is the face. The nose and eyes seem a little small and makes it appear flat, but the way you made it so it appears he's blowing is great. Sky van Niekerk

Wow....he's very detailed. I really like the headress, and how you made his cheeks look like he's blowing into the shell, which is also very nicely done. I also love the tatoos on his wrists. It's all a very good pic, keep it up! Sky van Niekerk

very nice detail work. Personally I think this would be appropriate with a southsea island background. I do feel the eye is a little forward and small for the face, but otherwise, it is magnificent.
