I looked at both this and the older version and i have to say that the improvement is outstanding. The original good on its own but when compared you see all the faults. The character seems to have a lot less emotion and impact behind it than the new one.

Vision (4/5) : I understand that this is a character created in and RPG and that fine. However if I was just to look at this i wouldn't know exactly what too think. You can tell that a lot of thought has gone into this but when you look at the image it is hard to tell what exactly his power is and how it is related to the armor. But i wouldn't be able to tell you what to change to improve that. It is hard to describe with images and you did it really well.

Originality (4.5/5) : I have never seen a character or picture like this before (so clearly i have never played that RPG...) The way only one side of his hair is super spiky is unusual but works really well with him. There isn't just originality in the character though, you can see something new in his armor and weapons. Especially the sword, that is not a weapon I would have expected. You can even see the scales just underneath the edge of the blade.

Technique (5/5) : Everything is perfect. The folds in his clothes, the details in the hair, the anatomy, the reflective metal surface. Also you can't see any lines in the picture and your shadows are smoothly shaded which helps increase the overall effect. The way you showed his power as the green light is really well drawn. You can tell that it is glowing, and it looks like energy rather than something tangible. If i were to do anything I would make the background darker and have the glowing power be a stronger source off light. Maybe be even then only source of light. That would be very eerie. It would also increase the impact of the piece.

Impact (4.5/5) : The impact is also there. The way he has contorted his face give you the strong impression that he is not someone to mess with. That in particular is the biggest difference between this image and the older version. You can see the difference in the way they hold themselves. It makes your new one much more real than the old one who was a little stiff and emotionless. Also the color green is a much better choice to represent his power. Like i said before, increasing the contrast is my main critique.

This looks like a great start! Your form is good and the detail is good too. The only thing I can critique here is the lighting. It's near if not completely directionless, where nearly everything facing the viewer is in highlight. The shield on the left gives a small sense of lighting coming from the right, but nothing else reflects that in the image. The If the lighting is from the right, then more parts of the lefthand side of the character would be in shadow, namely his right(our left) arm. Also, with the strength of the highlights the sword-creature thing on the right should be casting a shadow on the character.

I'll admit I'm clueless as to what the thing on his left is, but you've drawn and coloured it incredibly well. I love the green glow that connects the character to his armour and the way you've incorporated the tinge on the object to his left.
