Thank you very much! That was by far the nicest comment I ever got anywhere.
But there's still so much to do, so... dunno where to start.
First of all I made the flames turn to the other side... I still don't know which version looks better.
So what do you think... version 1 or 2?

your render is really a good way, so here's my feelings on the axe in flames, I think you would work just over the end of the flames because they stop too abruptly
and I give a little more volume to the axe even if there are flames, you should feel the volume. I find his face very successful. I will put other lights to give volume to the 3D character, this is my feeling

I agree with chris, The flames do end abruptly, They need to end a little further they do, the body needs some more light though im sure you were already gona take care of that.

Looking good otherwise.

Thanks for your opinions on the flames. I will enlarge them soon.
And I'll work on a backlight and front-lighting too, as soon as I finish the boots.

Update...
Worked on the trousers and armor today. It should look as if is was made of leather... but I think I have made it too shiny. I'll correct that later.

Looking good so far. I am liking the details you have added like the leather armor and the blood from the pull back of a killing blow. Just an idea, you could make where the blood is on the axe smolder and add a small smoke effect.

the texture of your armor and straps are really successful, the leather pants don't seem to me appropriate. keep it up!

Darchand: Good idea... I'll try that!
chris_solo: Thanks for the crit... I don't know... what material might fit better in your opinion? I didn't want to make him look like a medieval warrior.

I worked on the background recently. I think I might have overdone it a bit. But decide yourself.
The mast, blood and monsters in the foreground are still very WIP.

Updates look nice. The mast in the midground seems a little out of place in the composition. It's difficult to tell what it is, and just by the framing seems a little akward. Maybe you could find a better placement for it.

Very action packed though, looking cool.

Thank you Puckducker!
I will work on the mast in the midground.

I had some time to doodle around in blender today. This is my first real attempt to do a sculpt and just a test what my character might look like in 3d.
So I hope you like it.

I find your 3D very successful ... why don't you do the competition in 3D? I didn't respond to the pants, so I think you've finally made the right choice

Well, actually my 3d-skills are very elemental... far from beeing good. I do 3d for many years now, but I'm still a noob... maybe because I don't have the time to improve my skills properly... or maybe I'm not talented enough.

Nevertheless... thanks for the compliment and the comment on the pants.

I haven't had much time the last few days. But I made up my mind about the foreground-monsters.
Here's a very rough sketch.

I'll use dark colours and a backlight to gain the effect I want.

Fist of all The leather trousers look cool, i especially like the way they reflect the light from the axe. Although the light on his fingers and neck looks a bit odd to me, i think it's too red, maybe you cold make it more yellow.

Thats some awsome armor by the way, the mix of western and medieval comes together really well.

I am liking the way it is looking and I like that you have added something to the left which by the out lines that I see looks very cool. My only crit is the one I had before. The arm does not look like it is in a natural position. I almost looks like the arm ends at the elbow. I would just recommend looking into fixing that area.
