If you ask me, the dino doesn’t really appear too much like a guard. Maybe it’s the eyes and the paunch. Perhaps if the head had more squareness to it and less roundness to the eyes. Also, the ground texture could use some work, and the background needs to be more dynamic. Perhaps, you can add a small river, some patches of green, cloud shadows, etc. And if you wanted to emphasize elegance, do not be so reserved as to limit it to the patch on the scale and the bracelets: go wild with it, maybe make a whole uniform. Other than these things, I do like the texture on the dino itself. Hope you don’t mind the C&C; I don’t crit pictures I don’t think have potential.
