Voted earlier coming back to comment now.

At both times I have looked at your composition and both times it invokes the idea of what a Polynesian God of Fire would look like. I think it is because of the rich red/brown tones and the deep shadow lines that define the details/lines of the body that reminds of an artist's work in Hawaii who creates scenes of Polynesian culture and mythology by burning images into wood (woodburning art). Then the fire along the arm takes on a tribal tattoo quality. But I think that you were definitely not going for that imagery as that I now noticed a specific detail that I missed because I was looking at the image as a whole. The fiery 4 on the chest now changes my original impressions a tad. This is the Human Torch from the Fantastic Four...but I still can't help from seeing the composition as a Polynesian God of Fire. Nonetheless, the processing and imagery is different, interesting and unique to look upon (going to bump up my vote after more consideration) .
