    heya! i dig the knight!
    what i did was i enlarged the head a little and fixed the eyes since when flipping the canvas the eyes don't feel right. It's a good habit on occasionally flipping the canvas to see your mistakes since your eyes tend to adjust. I also harmonized the colors by blending the light more on the armor with an overlay layer.
    i cropped the composition and put her on the left side following the rule of thirds. i also balanced the lighting by lessening the amount of light on the left side.
    when choosing colors, please don't choose the edge of the color by picking hard blue but instead on the middle.

    this video tells about color harmony and picking of colors :) i dig the art by the way! :D

    i referenced an image i found on google :)
    please don't depend entirely on textures as they don't provide depth to the elements. instead, take time on studying forms, values and shapes by studying light :)
    i also removed the bright neon blue bar as it was too distracting and ruining the piece :)

    Hellowildfire! thanks for uploading!
    glad you finished it! :D i love the metal texture :) i did a quick overpaint and some adjustments to it. Your rendering is pretty nice now! and now i think the priority should be the focus for anatomy and perspectives.
    1st thing i noticed was he seemed off balanced, no sense of weight which is i think is still also important for poses.
    - the arm was a little bit too long so i shortened it and reposed it.
    -i also reduced the yellow hue in the shield because i felt that it's too saturated.
    -i also fixed the legs because the foreshortening wasn't being displayed correctly :)
    -the face i fixed as well :) what i did first was drawing the face without the helmet then putting the helmet on the top layer over it.

    overall i think the first thing you should work on is anatomy proportions and perspectives, because while your rendering is good, i find that they can't make up some of the things lacking because anatomy proportions and perspectives are one of the core things holding a piece together.

    first thing first, learn your porportions buddy :) This will fix a lot of your own issues. Second, always concider your light source and the corresponding shadow it's casting. :)
