Very nicely done, and for it to be a first render of a character [according to what you wrote] it is very well done. ^^ I see that you are using Daz Studio if I'm not mistaken, and so if you wish, I can try to give you tips on the lighting. :) I can only see you getting better as time goes on.
Yup i saw some tutorials- I can't post anymore pictures on the art thing until later in the month but I posted some renders of chars with some better lighting in the blog posts
