This is wonderful. I'm not a student of the medium, but was instantly drawn to his hidden hand. What's missing... why is it hidden.... I think art should provoke thought. This piece does a marvelous job. I look forward to more.
It'scool, but it' a little plain.
The one aspect that you have caught here is the fact that this is you and you have just done your mother.
A warrant is out for your arrest. great work.
The guy has a very Slavic-looking face, like a Russian or a Pole. His expression lends the feeling that he is a hard-working and serious person.
Really nice character-wise. Great face, excellent expression, very clean, well-textured. The instruments of his trade look very good. That scale, the cleaver in his hand and the chopping-block look photo-realistic.
Only criticism is that it looks a little too clean. Those yellow-brown smears on his apron could be a little darker, and the shirt (especially the sleeves) is a bit clunky. The metal blades and the knife-honer could have a little bit more contrast--they are little too pale for being in so near a background. But those are minor details.
Some meat on the table might add some interest, although I can also see why you chose to leave out this unnecessary and perhaps cliched element.
Very nice work!
being a butcher you would expect to see some meat.otherwise a good shot
