The beard and ruddy face certainly do bring focus, this is amazing. I actually thought it might have been done with coloured pencil to be honest. I think acrylic is hard to work with haha, thanks for not using a computer program to do this.

The beard and face certainly do form a strong contrast with the blues in the image, a very striking one indeed! :meow:

I think it's interesting how you layered the two complimentary colors together while they are saturated to really create a jarring effect.

Thanks - Warcraft relaly favours bold, saturated colours, and i can enjoy the contrast of working that way.

The contrast is good but I would recommend rotating the picture just a bit more horizontal. It's almost too slanted to read clearly, otherwise very nice work though.
