indeed, loads of teeth. I like it to. But from the angle you took the pics his legs and some of the muscles look a bit odd to me. The legs do look a bit to thin as if they couldn't support the body weight.

keep going

yes on the arm at the top its needs some verts pulling around so its not so lumpy an muscely just flowind better an should be too hard/ take long to fix
