Hi there! I love this piece so much I used it as part of my ink-work gallery on my profile. I realize I didn't ask first, but the first thing I do in the description is give you full credit for the lineart. I'd like to keep it there, with your blessing of course. If you want it taken down just send me a PM, and I'll do it.
Uh, yes it is. If you look he has not yet locked out the pulling arm, he is still holding the arrow as he is finishing the pull and he will have the string to cheek when he locks out. You could have the hand holding the bow open if you wanted as long as you are also pulling the string. FYI: My dad was an exceptional bow hunter and spent years training me. I know.
