I think the head being partially obscured by the shoulder lends a sinister feel to the creature that the current doesn't.
It also looks less like a turkey with the thicker jaw and neck.

I agree with Faceless about the head. Also, I love those hilights on the head and shoulder. They make my life.

I preferred the old head too.. It seems like is should get darker the further it gets from us though? Otherwise the lighting makes the head look like it's turned round more than it actually is..?

This  looks like a really hard pose and I have no idea if I'm talking nonsense.  :) - But if you were to remove the neck and top of the shoulders completely, I think the head looks like it's closer to us than the body.. And I can't put my finger on why exactly. The slightly obstructed bottom-of-head thing helped fix that I think.

I can't get over how nicely the muscles are done though.

ok, ok. the head is back to the way it was, the only difference now is the shadow on his lat has been removed. no need to update because i havent done anything but put the head back in place.

thankyou very much for the comments and crits everybody.

Some anatomy edits. Left shoulder + arm position, right hand thumb, some showing spine bones.

Dithering and refining should be a bit of a chore now, but it will look really nice in the end. Nice palette, the variable line weight thing is fun :)

and doing anatomy studies is always enjoyable
