    Not bad.. a few things that stood out.

    Something about that stance is weird. The feet placement would lend to hips going that same direction, but the hips are pointed more to the right. From there the shoulders should, in theory at rest, be in alignment, but those are tilted even more.. then the head is almost at a 90 degree angle to the feet.

    Watch the placement of straight black on black. It almost looks like you lose parts of the right arm in the armor. When in doubt save what you did, convert to black and white, and eyeball it.. (of course undo after).

    The lighting that gives the highlights seems inconsistent and confusion. From the dark top/light bottom shoulder pad, to all the highlighted rivets on back, and the pants.

    The right arm between the shoulder pad and the gauntlet looks unfinished and visually confusing.
    My commentary is a gift to you.
