The Glow Man

Hi, I am new to the Blender Artists forum, and I have decided to join to learn more about Blender. So far I have a blended a simple scene with a toy on top of a dresser. I based the character off of a toy from the Kinder Surprise Cholcolate eggs. The reason I chose such a character, was because I wanted to start out with something simple and cartoony.
Here are some pics of the room and some closeups of my character which I call Glow Man, (I am hopefully going to make him glow in the dark later in a animation Im writing up, hence the name). So far my animation is 56 seconds, I would like to show it but I don’t know how to upload it on to the Blender forum… oh well.
Anyway, I was just wondering if you have any comments, or criticisms about my work so far.
Also could anyone give me information on how to make something “glow in the dark?”
