Your first? Wow! That's amazing! My first wasn't even close to being okay looking! Great job! Could you get some shots of its whole body?

Welcome to SM
From what I can see it looks good for a first, try adding some lights and render on another colour oher than black, this should lift it and reveal the details.

if you are rendering using a camera you can change the background colour in the attributes panel under environment.

if you are not using a camera add one as you cant change it using the persp view.

hopefully this helps.

glad to help

glad you liked my gallery,
How do I render, to be honest, like everyone else what makes the difference is the light setup and how you use it.

I use nurbs in the early stages of modeling then convert to polys then convert to sub-D's later on.
