If I were you I would block his whole body out first, then go back and add finer muscles. Also look at as many ref pics as you can. Can I see a wire?

Seriously, Start again, you cant work on this, its way to dense.
You're not doing yourself any favours with this at all...

Sorry

Well in my experience it actually pays to show the non smoothed at this stage, the hi res is pointless especially when you are asking for help...so a lo res wire would be alot better

Please shade the next time you post a wire, its hard to see the flow when it's unshaded like that.
