So Asa suggested that I put some "bling" around the area of focus. Hopefully this is enough, or not too much. Did really short research on some medieval ornate designs on the armor, and couldn't really find anything I liked right off the bat. So yeah, made it up myself based on some things I've found.
Anyway, constructive criticism is always welcome. Heck, just leave a comment if you want.
EDIT: Re-posed the arm and tweaked some things here and there. I'm not sure what to do with him to add "character." I may have to redo his pose make him convey that sense of character that I want for him.
