I love this sketch, especially because of the placement of the arrows. I read you're not happy with the placement, but I really enjoy that, beyond the torturous pain of being struck with arrows, all of their positions make him unable to move from his pose. It's very Atlasian.
the only thing that bothers me with the placement of the arrows is that they are at right angles which is not very "natural" I wasn't apparently paying attention to that and at the end just noticed it but it was a bit late
I understand where your coming from in the sense of realism, and I agree, but the arrows still ignite strong feeling in the dramatic sense, which shouldn't be ignored. Because I can't ignore puns, even if this wasn't "the angle you were shooting for" it's still an engaging piece.
indeed it is, especially since my works are mostly focused on the metaphor rather than the "functional" appearance - and I think it fits what I wanted to say perfectly - the rest is mostly aesthetics talking pun is fun too
