    Well he's a gray blob so it's hard to say all about the anatomy but at a quick glance the proportions at least look okay. Though if he's six feet tall, maybe having him couple heads taller could work better to give him an air of tallness without having to state the height.
    EDIT: Though I do wonder about his right side foot... http://eyecager.tumblr.com/post/1653...s-but-pros-and

    My first impulse is to say that he has a tiny chest. Or that his head's too big. The armor design seems a little all over the place thematically. In general I guess that's over but since you have some sort of lion head on his belt maybe develop the armor design around that?

    Unfortunately there are a lot more issues here than the specifics I mentions above. Based on this image alone it seems like you're just randomly picking out a spot to render then moving on. That's okay of you're a really good artist . I would suggest sticking to some sort of procedure first to learn the ropes. For example I usually start out with a sketch, then cleaner lineart, then flat colors with some shading, then painting over the flat colors. Having a proper structure could really help you out.

    Just a quick one -
    Get your forms right before you start detailing, work on your posture more, the anatomy seems off and its a very stiff.
    Oh and get some ref! A good understanding of how actual armour works and fits together will help you loads, even if you go to an extreme…

    I would suggest you take a look at Bridgeman anatomy. Your arm and leg, as mentioned, do not look funtional. Also, I would add a knee. Right now it doen't look like he/she has one. Thanks

    He's looking very effeminate, which is cool, but if he's supposed to be big and manly, maybe that isn't such a great plan.
    anatomy wise this isn't so great, there are a few books you could read, Loomis/Bridgeman is all very well and good, but in my experience, you need to work from reference PHOTOGRAPHS (I can't stress the need for photographs or life models enough, working from someone else's work just wont cut it), especially faces, because I think that's the part you're weakest on. Please don't take anything I've said as an insult, because I really don't mean it that way.

    the face was just a 2 min job just to put something there while I style the armour. This is the first rough.

    Thanks, everyone I can try to improve him now, please keep the crit coming thought

    If I buy the bridgmans anatomy book will that teach me all the muscles in the human body? Id rather learn from computer drawing too, rather than a pencil sketch, because bridgmans looks pencil sketch?
