For this piece, I honestly believe you should make the colors a tad brighter and the resolution sharper. The image itself can look a tad muddy and faded. Other than that, I honestly like it.

Also, were you provided with a model sheet? Or did you just have that one image for reference?

Just that one image. I used the design as the character basis, and then built on it from there.

That is amazing man, to build an entire model from nothing else, just one image.

The passes are amazing. Can you tell me the names/types of passes?

Thanks. =} And yes. Although one of the 'passes' is also just re-edit pass outside of the vray/max engine. On the compositing side of things, I don't compile passes in an entirely linear fashion; my process of creating the final still is mostly intuitive/creative.

From left to right:

'Beauty' Pass; gothic oil pass-edit; rawReflection; reflectionFilter; rawGI; VrayDiffuse/shadows; VrayLighting; rawTotalLighting; rawRefraction; VrayReflection; Specular; Zdepth; RenderID.
