Finally got a day off since forever ago, so am able to check this out.
As a creature, I love the glowy parts. His tattoos make him more interesting than if he was just stone. I like the bald thing. He rocks it like Patrick Stewart and Luke Goss. His shoulders are the best part imo. As for six packs... well, I like them, but a lot of women do not find it attractive for some reason, so his abdomen will work for a lot of women. (I personally like lots of different body types)
As for intimidation, well... you'd have to NOT see him animated to find him too intimidating imo. The short where he runs his hands down her torso and legs is a prime example of this. He's not violent in his interactions (Sara is more intimidating, imo, lol) nor is he depicted as clumsy or mean-spirited. In other words, I don't feel that Sara is going to end up crushed (as if he is a boulder) or ripped apart in anger. Since he is so large, it's good that you pulled that off without making him less cool. He still has leading-man potential without being too scary.
thank you for the quick assessment of Stoney lemonade8... it's good to know that we're on the rite track with him. he has great strength, but he's gentle... and not a brute but a scholar. he was a sorcerer before Sara stuck his sole in this stone body, but the details are known only to our writer for now... alls we know for sure is that the magical glyphs animate his stone body...
