I think the body looks amazing, muscles look perfect and very awesome pose
Couple things that stuck out. The blood on the blade is the only blood that I can really see in the scene. Almost makes it look like the cat is playing dead. Blood doesn't have any shading or highlights, and kinda grabbed my attention immediately in contrast to your amazing muscle structure here. It even pushes beyond Frazetta detail work which is probably why the blood stuck out to me so much.
Ack, just something I noticed. Phenomenal job though Esp as I've been doing so many muscle studies myself, you really have this shit down!
Joe, I've admired your work for years! You signed my copy of the Silver Surfer book a few years ago at the Novi Comic-Con and took the time to talk to me for a while about painting. Thanks! Your work is amazing. This reminds me of Frank Zane. This is your BEST EVER!!
