    Okay, first things first. It would be great if you gave an explanation of what you are aiming for in this piece. What's going on? Who is this guy? Why is this guy in front of a castle? etc. Determine what your picture is about and then use everything at your disposal to portray that. Gesture, colour composition, focal point. Everything.

    The castle I'm guessing is meant to be in the distance. You need to use some aerial perspective to show this. at the moment you are going quite dark in value. If you look at something far away you will find the values tend towards the sky value as the darkest. Use reference. It's the best way to get something looking correct.

    One thing that bugs me about the character is his abs. Get some reference for that aswell. Look up body building on google or something.

    I like the job you did on the face and hair. You have obviously spent more time on this area.

    The thing that's bothering me most is the anatomy of the arms, especially the shoulder muscle. You have too much definition between the individual muscles of the shoulder, and there is way too much of a break between the pecs and the shoulder. Some references of really muscular men would really help in this regard.

    As for the rest of the piece, you're going to need to establish a midground and a stronger foreground before this really gets serious. Best of luck! I will be watching this piece very closely to see if I can help
