ah...brilliant ^_^ so i go away for a few months, come back, and you appear to have triplicated your asskicking quota. love the pastel shadows beneath him, and the nice brilliant textures. may want to tone down that black on his feets, just 'cuz it stands out a bit and flattens them. but other than that, i love it ^_^
Wow I like this one, the colored shadows and smooth blurs really do it for me. Is this in painter?
The one thing I might suggest is maybe blur the shoes as well, their sharpness draws a lot of attention. Unless of course that's what you were going for. I'd maybe suggest sharpening an aspect about the piece that is more important like maybe his face or his glasses or have another object like a fish or a wave or something closer to the camera to balance it out. But that's just my suggestion.
MG: DJ this is freakin' awesome...brilliant colouring, especially with the surf trail from the hovercraft and the glint on Hex's goggles, Hex also looks like he's having the time of his life...and a great idea too.
