Well, if he's posting it here I'm sure he expects critique pointing out things that can be improved in the piece, so even if it isn't a WIP, you can still say something constructive. And for the second question, his name is Stumpy Stanley...

I think it'd look a lot better if you shallowed out some shadows. I'm sure his clavicle doesn't stick out as far as his pectorals, which seem to protrude as much as every rib in his chest. It's like everything takes up the same distance from his body according to their shadows, do you know what I mean? Not everything needs the deep shadows.

it seems like with the position of his right arm stub, the gree back glow should be modified to have his chest cast a shadow on it if you know what i mean.

Shallowed shadows as suggested by Blick
Reworked right arm stub some (maybe not enough?) as suggested by legofreak
Replaced ugly taloned foot, now ugly twisted foot.
Some simple dithering
Spent remaining colours on some cheap hue variation over skin


2^4 colours.

Awesome, the new update with this more colors and hues work very well!!  :y:

Only i not like very much is the green light, in the first image seems a green light, but in this seems minus light and a little how is impregned of anything green.

But well i think this is crit much...

I like this piece quite a bit it reminds me of Giger Art. I must say Matriax's comment on the green secondry source is very valid. Personally i would extend the green light on parts of the body, perticulary the shoulder/upper arm. I am some what of a blood seeker and i would personally put some blood hee and there espeacially hanging from the "stub" also a bit of flesh! :D
