    Well, I was going for an above, and to our right light source, which I guess I'm failing to convey...thought I had it, at least on the body...?

    yeah, didn't feel like it was a natural transition between leg and torso...

    I really, really, have to work on this...I thought I had it working, but I'll try to fix it...

    I'll have to remove all those wonderful teeth I saw some comic reference where he had teeth, so went with it, but makes more sense to remove them.

As long as each shot's better than the last, you're moving in the right direction.
    I get what you're saying...I just really liked the idea of this pose, so ?maybe one more try?

    THIS! This explains why the leg was looking so off to me!

    Hands: To "sell" the clutch or claw hand, draw a line from elbow through the wrist and out the hand. That line will fall on, or between, the index and/or bird finger.
    I just have to say thank you for taking the time to provide so much valuable information, I am back to the drawing board

    Some excellent crits to take on-board and Eko's response demonstrates the right attitude. Do Kirby proud!

    Looks cool, way better. The angle of the feet on the ground might need a little adjustement.

    Looks nice to me. I think "King" Kirby would be happy, too, which is the most important part!
