you should see how many files I tend to save for just 1 3D model.

WIP. Decided to go a different route. Re-inked it digitally. Samari Jack style. I.E. no black lines (unless an rea is going to be black.) Cleaned it up a bit. So we'll see what happens.

you need to change that blue and maybe that red.
Mostly for 2 reasons
1: The colors are too harsh. They are too bright and need to be turned down to keep from hurting the eyes. You don't have to take them down to the point where they are dull, but just enough it doesn't hurt.
2: Red and blue clash, bad. Since they are both primary colors, it's tough to get them to work when they are this bright. This second reason might be easily solved by correcting the first problem.

you also may want to consider more web safe colors...

example

Ok, I'll tone down the colors. The pic is a self portrait of sorts. It's my L.A.R.P. Character Rock And yes I wore those exact colors. Lol.

wait you larp?

I used to know some larpers... see them at the conventions as well.

I'm a D&D guy, but I never did any larp. Acting in character and talking in character was about as far as I went. Although I do dress for Renaissance Fairs when I have the chance.

a setting fitting to the character would be a good start...
put him in a scene from a past adventure.

I think the background out classes the oic Lol. Maybe if I texture the figure as well? Should keep the simple shading simple.

Not sure how to do that. The ax from the LARP standpoint was an artifact made of white stone and the striking surface was silvered. In RL the ax and hammer were made of Foam pvc pipe and duct tape so it's a little hard to draw them when you have that image floatin' in yer noggin.
