    Ok, guys I changed the picture in accordance to some of your critques. I changed the color saturation, added a little detail, etc etc. Check it out. Feedback is very much welcome.
    The first image is the original and the second is the revised one.

    nice job, it's very clear and vibrant. I dont like the blur though, it looks a little too photoshop for me, i like a more natural looking blur.

    Its not bad at all you have a nice clean drawing and everything is reading very well. Happily because of that all we can do is nit pick and try and push you to an even more polished look. I agree with thunderrobot, that the blur is making it look a bit gimmicky, but also the leaf brush is too...Its one of those "straight out of the box" brushes that instantly shout out photoshop...that and the grass one

    Aside form that its just little things..how the hand wraps around the spear...perhaps a more exciting composition...add more contrast..etc etc yadda yadda yadda. overall good work, and don't worry the more you practice with the software and find your nitch the better your work will be.

    If possible, you could go back in and put some more detail in the leaves so that they don't just look like you used a leaf brush.

    hey guys thanks for the input. Like I said this is my first digital painting so I those leaf brushes and grass brushes were so eye candy to me, I will try to stay away from them and all those filters the better I get.

    I'm not sure what's going on, are those guys supposed to be blurred in a depth of field kind of way? Or are they supposed to be blurred in a fashion where they're kinda falling back by getting their asses kicked by our hero in the center? If it's the former, it really looks like they're kind of in motion, you might want to try different blurs. If it's the latter, you might want to add more motion to our hero because if they're just collapsin' from a can of whoopass, he should be in a kind of follow-through type of pose.

    So on a more nit-picking level... the blood on his armor looks a bit too bright to be believable and I'm not sure if I'd totally agree with the blurred streamers (for lack of a better word) on his shoulders, though it could actually help keep the focus on him - you could just experiment with it, I'm not the best authority on this stuff. Other than that, the streamer that's comin' up into the foreground seems awfully close to his opponent, and those things seem more like a hazard. Either he can trip over one of those, or his enemies can grab hold of one and yank him off balance... so while they look cool, that's just something to consider.

    Other than that, I agree with the others, it's a cool piece - it just needs a bit more refinement.
