First thing that struck me was the lack of green, he's in a forest. There should be green everywhere. It doesn't need to be bright green as it wouldn't fit with the solemn mood you seem to have going, but dark greens and stuff.

i dono about that green... i quite enjoy the mood of first piece way more.. seems like green takes away from that

Yeah, the first one definitely has a more sinister feel - as if something's stalking the knight. My only crit would be the foreground perspective seems to fall off too sharply in front of the knight - other than that it's a really nice piece!

I went back to the first one, cleaned it a bit, added some birds as Duman suggested (but no leaves this time, i think it has more depressive mood on it sorry!) and brought out the foreground a bit. Thanks everyone for your input! appreciated!

I guess fairs fair in the leaf department.
I do think his helmet is slightly asymmetrical. The right side of the mouth slot is longer than the left.
Otherwise I think its pretty good.
You should spend this much time on a few more pieces!

Nice! Really digging the mood.
I've been trying to figure out why the knight looks so odd, and I think it's that he looks like he's standing on one leg. Worse, I cant tell which leg is forward. Draw the figure underneath, get some motion going. If he's walking, remember that the body will tilt forward ever so slightly. When drawing the figure, pay attention to the shield arm- it's not adding up. The shield need to be bigger, or lower, or we need to see more of the arm.
Great work so far.
