This is a stunning piece of work. I was very drawn in by the colors. The highlight on his face draws me in to the picture, and then the highlight on his spear helps to move my eyes through the entire picture. The background is very appropriate in creating a mood of conflict and turmoil, while the lone figure emphasizes that it is his struggle. I think that, if there is one thing I may like to see improved, it would be to define the shadows and highlights around the crotch area a little more, as it is it's almost blending in with the color of the ground.
