with resin you should use smaller pours and a blow dryer/heat gun to remove all the bubbles from the resin. this will make it a lot more clear and will show off the painting you did inside.

You mentioned wanting feedback so here goes. 

I really like the piece - nice choice of model and the water effects are great. 

I’d say he needs more contrast to define his face and the colour of his pants is too similar to all of his leather belts etc so a brighter red would have contrasted better.

Also some edge highlighting would do wonders for his spear point.

Really solid entry if you ask me you should be really pleased with it

I liked this piece quite a bit when I saw it. The resin pour looks cool and while the foam effects on the side aren't necessarily realistic, I think they add a pretty neat touch of texture and color. The resin pour looks a bit murky, which I don't necessarily think is a big issue, but you could have made it more transparent by sanding the sides and then hitting it with a gloss varnish and/or using a blow dryer to remove bubbles. Pouring resin is an advanced technique and I don't claim to be an expert on it, so this looks pretty good to me.

The model itself is very clean and painted well, with nice highlighting and shadowing. I think the primary issue with it is color choice. The skin color is very bronzed, which is fine, but it doesn't contrast well with the pants and leather. A nice grey-blue or green or something may have added some color without being too garish and keeping it together with the rest of the piece.

I think the piece would have benefited from a couple more angles too. You clearly put some work into the part that's covered by the resin pour, but it's difficult to tell what's there with this one angle.
