looks good for your first model. ... i like it

one thing that bothers me though is his hand which grips the sword ...there is no gripping ..it is more like his hand is there and the sword is just hanging in mid space.Also his left foot looks like it is floating off the ground



but i do like your model for first time it is good work..congrats ....hope to see more work

Nice for your first model. But the camera angle is not suitable. It appears that your main light source is coming from the right side. Try to position your camera on the same side so the viewer has the light source behind him (Just the same when you take a photograph).

It looks like a cool model - well done. At the moment though, I think that the background and ground plane are not really working with your character. I would try to put in a background that is a little less distracting.

but for your first model i really think you did a great job,
