Very nice! I really love your sketch style. And Kratos is meticulously detailed--blades, belt, and all. I would suggest about changing his height though. Anyway, this is real awesome and I'll be looking forward for the finished version.
Very nice sketch. You've certainly got the riduclous bulk going on, although it makes him look a little short. Kratos is a tall guy, so maybe try extending the length or reducing the width of his waist and legs. Looking forward to the final.
I'm looking forward to seeing the final result! As for critiques, the only thing I could mention is that I think the jaw looks a bit too slim compared to the rest of the face. I know that it's a part of your style to draw such expressions, but in this case I think the jaw looks sort of fragile, especially compared to the size of the teeth. However, that's just nitpicking.
Only thing I would say (and this is just me being picky) but in comparison to your last Kratos, this one is no where near as cut. A bit of definition in his muscles would really bring out the feeling of intensity in the character. Again just me being picky, but I love it none the less!
this looks fantastic and i wish you put up more sketches like this. since you asked: the only thing that bothers me is the hands and the knives. they dont seem to be lining up exactly? the grip on them could be altered so it's not so rigid so the angle could be slightly off like it is or just alter the angles?
or i'm wrong and completely off base.
either way: great pic! please put up more sketches!
