Of what species? xP Great portrait painting. It somehow reminds me of Gorons from the Zelda series if they were not so obese. And with fur/hair on their faces. I'd perfer this design over the current one, anyway. The texture you give your work is always so amazing, and I assume you do it by brush? You have done a nice job with this; keep up the awesome work. :]
The skin and horns are amazingly detailed. While I was closely admiring all the details, though, I noticed the blurred edge around the figure heeh. It's still a great pic though, kinda reminds me of the Dutch Renaissance masters in the very detailed realism and the way it captures the character of the figure.
