This is fantastic. The character really engages the viewer and it pops right off the screen.
The glow around the fur looks very impressive. I like all of you color choices, and the textures you chose for the clothes and straps etc.
The only real "critique" I would offer, is that you work on an intricate background scene. A subject this beautiful deserves a dynamic environment to dwell in. Maybe a village being torn apart by his less "shamanistic" associates, or maybe you could show him standing at the front of an army, preparing to attack.
It is exactly what you described. You're right, also I think is a bit too small, but since I did not know how long it would last the test, I preferred not to put to waste time to remedy, it's still nice, of course, could definitely stand out better. eheheheh
