I love it; the face and the hands are my favorite part of this picture. The fur around his neck is great, though I think the fur on his legs almost look too choppy to me. The lighting is very nice, and I love the touches of sand around the coffin. Very nice picture!
The textures all look realistic to my, admittedly untrained, eyes. The imagery of the piece is certainly a novelty as well. He isn't the same Anubis the Egyptians worshiped and loved, nor is he a like any modern icon... this is wholly the artist's creation. His skeletal face and horns stand out the most to me and clearly associate him with death, as does the setting. The shaggy fur and clawed feet reminds me a bit of a werewolf which, for another piece might be a criticism but not here... It makes him look dangerous and feral. He wears the ankh like a weapon and sits for more like an impatient warrior than a king or god. His muscles and structure, also remind me more of a fighter. I've seen bulkier men, but his body looks more tuned for killing then theirs... put simply, he looks very dangerous. If I had to criticize the piece I'd say I didn't like the plume of feathers on his shoulders. All I can think about when I see it is how hot it must be in that kind of weather. It's also the least Egyptian part of him and clashes with the rest of the outfit and the theme of the piece, as far as I can tell. Overall, he doesn't look like Anubis to me, but I don't much care. I still want to hear his story and I can't quite tear my eyes away.
