Yeah, Voluspa may be right about the size. I actually thought it could be cut by a third at first, but then the armor & window looks so much further back, that's why I suggested 50%. I also didn't see him as a dwarf, which would make a more sense if he was. But the armor, being on a stand of full height with it's drapery & slim appearance, gave me the impression that this was a normal sized human, which also would make me believe the window would be centered around eye level, which then does not mesh with the fireplace & weapon. You also have an illusion of sorts, where the top of the table and bottom of floor (where the axe rest) appears to be on the same plane. ... Hope you don't think I'm just looking for issues or nit-picking, because I really like the pic and look forward to seeing it completed.
Couple suggestions if it helps ya at all. - You could expand the fireplace, both in width and height to help make it fit the weapon better. (simply running it off the page would do for the width) Then you could enlarge the armor some, and just have the stand/pole come down to sit on top a box or crate with the fabric draped down and then along the floor. This would help take away the tall, slim appearance it has now and help it mesh better. :)
