How is it that you achieve that colouring, the shades look like the have a "dot" based effect? That gives the drawing an incredible amount of reality and truly brings it to life, how is it that you colour like that? O:
Excellent illustration with some fantastic colouring! You really brought out the depth of the musculature beautifully.
I think the inked blood on the axe looks a little out of place left as black in the coloured version though. With the red spatter added it reads as rather odd cracks in the axe head. Maybe if it was the same red as the spatter?
