Is it just me or the foot is just big enough?

I'm not sure what you mean..? the feet are big, but that's mostly because of the perspective. Also, I think I'm gonna edit the pose of his feet, look somewhat weird right now..

Mammoth improvement, venatorinc!

Not really diggin the basic tribal deco on the throne, though. And true, the feet seem to need to be more solidly planted on the grounded, they're angle is odd.

I urge you to seriously consider some dramatic lighting, such as in Opacus' blue-lit edit. Though, your chosen environment is a volcano cave right? So then red/orange would be more likely - warm, not cold

 -ALTHOUGH-

undead/death lord/zombie makes me think of more sickly green and yellowy tints, like disease and decay, and macabre  . . . stuff . . . rot . . . etc. yep

Well, I started with the idea of an undeath lord or something, then it became a tribal god, now I think it looks more like an undeath good again  :P
I don't know about the environment, I don't think a volcano would look perfect, like u said.

Maybe u guys can give me some ideas?
I think a dungeon is somewhat basic..

Maybe being carried on a bamboo palanquin by minions? With a jungle background?

Nah, I don't think a jungle scene would look good on this... at last, he is undead, not a tribal god anymore  ;)
EDIT:


Changed feet. Should I start creating the real line art or do I have to sketch the background first?

In that case, there probably shouldn't be a tribal design on the chair ;)

As I said before, it's a really good idea to try blocking in colours and then scribbling lines over that (Like Opacus' edit)

Conflicting ideas (like the tribal design, Norse-style boots  and the attire of the God) just muddy the idea you want to give.
The throne's not exactly angular and still looks to small, there's perspective issues too.

Here's an edit, note the really quite simple carving things on the throne.


I'd start to block in the background too, it'll give an idea on what colours to use.

so, what u exactly mean with "blocking in colors"?
Just simply adding colors and some basic shading, but not fully detailed work?

no, using your canvas as if painting a picture, using a bigger brush. then refining it.

Paint with colours, not outlines, is what it means
