MY COMMENTS:
the continuing saga in my plight to be an artist
it's awful, i know, his shoulder to hip area/balance/angle/whatever is just wrong and i'll have to try another with actual measuring

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
anything, i plan to trace the reference so i can see through to my errors in anatomy

how 'bout the color changes? too cold now?
more contrast now but it was extremely warmer before http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1123152

On the anatomy of your guy, go to www.images.google.com (http://www.images.google.com) and search on
"actor bowing", and "actor kneeling".

For the female form, search for
"female nude poses posterior" -- I didn't find the exact pose but maybe you can find enough of what you are doing to Frankenstein something together.

I did find a few things that may give you an "ah ha" moment.

Is this eye "in the neck"?

I think the angles on the hips/shoulders are a problem, and the I don't think you've shown, in the rest of the torso, that one leg is up and the other is down. One side of the torso should be crunched and the other streched.

Also, I think you're showing too much of the upper back. I can't imagine a human form where the back is that straight at the bottom and then at the top bends like you have it. Just my opinion.

Search google for a boxer that's down on one knee, with his head down. Here's one that if you can rotate it in your mind's eye may help

I like the style of the legs, almost cubist, really nice.

I like the coolness, don't think it's too cool now.

Is it an eye?
Forgetting the artistic and looking at the practical:
The decapitated head looks a little undersized compared to the body
The axe would need to have a broader, sharper blade to remove the head.

As for the proportions of the figures, well it is a fantasy piece and I don't really think that those are problems.
