I like it too.

The image is not very clear since it's a snapshot. I'd recommend rendering it out as a .png file and posting that. I usually set my image size to 520X390 (but not bigger than 640X480) and set the quality to production (default is "draft" I think which is still not very clear). This should give you a pretty good render to make your details stand out better and keep the picture from being too big.

Excellent work so far, expecially for your first project. Looking forward to seeing more.

OOOH! I wouldn't put the Simpsons on there, but Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is what all the little squires take their lunches to school in. Also, when I was a kid, I had a tin one with a superman comic on it. It was awesome!

Looks really good for your first model, but you need to render it, not take a screenshot.
