Here is what comes to mind;

1/ I really like that bit of detail of an anonymous looking object you placed in the reflection of his helmet. One thing I’ve observed about metal is how the more chrome like it is the more you will start to clearly see the objects because it functions like a mirror.

2/ I would be kind of curious to see the details of the axe soften and blurred out just a bit.

3/ Although the crossbow is simple wood and construction you pulled the perspective off well. I really like the front of it and the metal protrusion. The angle just seems very convincing when I look at it.

4/ The sheath that the bolts are being placed in is neat because it looks like it’s laid flat so he doesn’t have to fumble around for a bolt when he needs pull another one out.

5//The mail print on the pauldrons is really nice; the texture, color, and lighting just works well.

6/ I would soften the veins a little bit; if you want to get them to feel a little more realistic.

7/ Those symbols on the flaps of his boots are a neat added feature with out dominating the piece.

8/ That cloudy/fog is very nice.

9/ This one is all in all is very nice and has good character information.

Hey Superbum, You need to check your grammar when you do a critique otherwise you can look like a jackass even though you are putting forth effort..
