I liked this, but not as much as Jazza. It just doesn't seem like anything that much out of the ordinary. The sword is pretty cool. I recommended you, because everyone deserves that! Can art pieces even be blammed? I'm glad you welcome criticism.
You could have used more of a background. You could also try to have a story going on with this character. I mean that you should show him doing something. I guess there's nothing really bad about it. It's just not too noteworthy.
You should be VERY proud, your colors, shading, proportions and especially lighting are all fantastic. For your first digital painting, you kick the shit out of me when I first started. I love how well you did the Katana and the blue light on the character subtle enough to show but not be obnoxious. Fantastic work, adding this one to my favorites.
