Alright, I'm going to be brutally honest. I realize that you were going for an emaciated look, but this looks like it's literally skin and bones. There really isn't any indication of the presence of muscles under the skin. Also, for sculpting at that large of a scale, you can afford to squeeze much more detail in there. -and I don't just mean surface level textureing, but actual cohesive anitomical detail will skin wrinkles and whatnot over the top. If you google "emaciated", you'll see what I'm talking about. Don't be afraid of reference. (though in this case I wouldn't exactly blame you for avoiding it.) As it stands, this just looks way underplanned and rushed, as if you just slapped it together for an overnight deadline. If I were you, next time I'd post midway through and get a good critique before you finish it.
Also, this reminds me way too much of Tod McFarlane's Violator. Regardless, thanks for sharing, and keep it up!

Hey, congrats on the cash man, that's pretty rad. Welcome to CA (should have welcomed you before). I'm not familiar with the Sijun boards, but here at CA if you say "i need all the feedback i can get", then you should be willing to hear an honest critique. -Make sure you want what you're asking for, and don't waste people's time.
After looking over your photos again, I'd have to stick with my original comments. Not many people here will take the time to view and critique your work just to berate you, so if you get a critique, 9 times out of 10, it'll be absolutely in your interest to take notice of what they're saying. If someone takes the time to try to help you, that's actually a really good compliment all by itself.
If I'm just pushing your buttons here, then take what I say with a grain of salt, and move on. I'm not trying to be a dick by any means. Awards and study time don't necessarily equal successful art. If the detail is there, and the pics just aren't doing them justice, then give us some decent pictures ya bum! :P Just don't let yourself hide from a critique to nurse your ego. That's artistic death! I've seen plenty of friends screw themselves that way and end up working retail jobs or worse.
Again, thanks for posting, man, and congrats on the moolah!

That is looking really great. Now I know what you mean about seeing the character with the maquette.
Good job. Congrats in the cash too.
