My Sexy Barbarian!

This drawing was first to be a full body anatomy practice but it turned out to be a character image. Here is my barbarian from my "Renaissance" series. I thought that since I don't post too much on my blog that I would add some flair to the image and share it with everyone.
I have posted some images of my barbarian way back when I first opened up this blog. HERE
You can see quite a difference in how I now draw him. He has become more rugged and serious. I also added a bit of facial hair. He kind of turned out to look a bit like Kratos from the "God of War" series. This was not intentional but kind of a happy accident.

One thing I noticed that when I draw a full body image I tend to make my characters feet way too big for there bodies. I could have corrected his feet size if I drew it on the computer but I did this with old school paper and a pencil. I liked the way the feet came out so I did not want to erase and redraw them. If I ever decide to ink and color this image I will correct it then.

Speaking of large feet. When I do this with my drawings I can't help but be reminded of the character designs from the Street fighter Alpha series. I added a couple of images below so you know what I am talking about. Do you see the similarities?

Oh and I have no idea what to name my barbarian. Any ideas? That would be great!
