For a first try it is rather good. Of course there are some minor things, but I feel other playgrounders can explain them better than me. Very well done, I say.

That is pretty good. The image looks slightly flat, and the sword and shield could probably use some detail to make it stand out, but other then that, it's fine.

The legs should bend a little bit more(which also gives a bit more of a fighting stand)
The arm should be so that it is in front of the body, I mean, why do you want to defend the air to your right?
The hair looks weird, try cutting the top so that it is a bit rounder.
The other arm should bend(the one with the sword.) as in OOTS-style.

I'm sure there are more things, but I can't see them right now/ I'm sure others can explain better.

It looks pretty good for a first try!

The way you have it now, it looks like the top of his hair is being cut off by the top of the image. I don't know if that's an intended effect, and if you do want the hair to stop there I would suggest curving it slightly to avoid the impression that it stops at the edge of the image. If not, scale the entire avatar down in whatever program you are using to fit within the drawing canvas.

I would suggest increasing the line thickness around the torso to match the rest of the image. You could also increase the thickness on the arms and legs.

I think it's really good for a first try.

When you carry on practicing, don't copy Riche's style exactly, try to interprate it, for example, look at LyingInBedMon's Oots art, it's simlar to The original but he's changed it slightly to make it his own.
