Pose is ineffective. Have him put his whole body into it! Arm thrown back for strong line of action, grounded footing, and leaning more into the hit!
Here's an example I pulled off google, obviously no need to go quite as real with it but it gives some idea what I mean!

But yea, 2nded on the post, legs also appear disporportionally short and hands might be a bit too small. Nice rendering on the clothes though  :y:

I am a newbie myself so :)  I really like the colors and detail, if you make the pose stronger it might be a winner!

It's the fighting pose from the original Monkey Island.

The reference was lower resolution, and so it used body proportions very common for games, with comparatively larger head (in order to fit details), and smaller legs. However when you draw it in higher detail, the same proportions quickly look odd.
If you shortened the neck, I think it would already look more natural.
Also the sword arm looks abnormally short in this position. It's because you draw it as fully extended (lunge), however in the original the elbow is actually flexed, more relaxed. It's clearer on the opponent's sprite, who has more regular body proportions.
