The main thing that strikes me as weird is the legs; with such a large body, it would need thicker legs and larger feet to hold itself up. There's hardly any muscle in the lower leg, I think those need to be beefed  up a bit. Also, the feet are in awkward positions.

Mmmm true I shall fix that, and the feet are being fixed as we speak. :)

Perhaps this sort of foot construction might work. However it's clear you're inventing anatomy (yes even on lizard beasts of your own devising) so I would suggest a more ground-up approach.

The red lumps are bits that don't make any sense to me. I think the one at the right is supposed to be part of the tail, but that's not really consistent with the spine.

Actually, given some thought, his spine does make sense. The blue line however depicts it somewhat wrong. It would look awkward however, since the part of the tail on the right seems to be lower. It should be a bit higher, otherwise.. It's fine.

the red lump behind our right leg is the start of the tail. And the other red lump is the stomach. But, your second smaller version does make more sense to me. And Helm, Thanks for that foot idea :). I will be working on anatomy and an update should come tomorrow. Thanks for the comments everyone ;D

EDIT: Never mind ^^. I got an idea and decided to redo some of the anatomy, which now seems much more practical. The only area I am having trouble with is the last leg, I just can't get it too look correct.



Better? Worse?

 I really appreciate your help ;D

I did a quick paintover this morning but didn't have time to post. It contain small changes on the anatomy, perspective, contrast and pose. A lot have been suggested since so forgive me if I'm repeating what others have already suggested.
Anyway, here it is an animated wip of the edit and a still image of the final product.

wow that is a sexy edit Stefano. Thanks ;D. I wish I had though of something like that, rather than completely alter the piece :crazy:

Yeah. I should have posted it before... that's too bad.
Anyway, good luck with completing your project. Can't wait to see it done!  ;)
