Love it and I think its great. I do think you can make the figure on the left seem more powerful by making his feet face outward. With them pointed inward like that, he seems a bit uncertain.

if you notice some athletes have this tendency.. it actually gives you better traction to have your toes pointed inwardly (to a certain extent) especially on rugged, uphill terrain. also a good fighting stance is based or centered on the balls of your feet, with your feet facing too far outward most of the balance shifts towards your heels... not good battle posture!

He's standing at rest though. He's not in a fighting posture. Nor is he struggling with rugged terrain. The goal seems to be to strike an intimidating posture. To this end, there is a correlation between posture and confidence both felt and impressed upon a viewer.

I don't have the time to search a different website than the one linked above, but most of the studies I have read agree that the two are linked.
If you have doubts, google confidence and body language.

no I get that I've seen that trait before.. but I've also seen it as a somewhat natural stance in some athletes... and it does come in stance through walking running etc. where footing is a key factor

I have not been observant enough to say whether or not it becomes obvious when an athlete is working, so I'll concede that point because it applies pretty well to the sketches on the right. The larger drawing on the left is not an action shot.

I simply wanted the artist to know my feedback as a viewer. The inwardly turned feet makes the ogre seem less certain to me. Like he doesn't know what to smash first.

This is very very cool. Both conceptually and your execution.
I love that it has a very unique flair to it, yet is in keeping with the classic vision of ogres. The equipment is neither too elaborate, nor too crude. And the Ogre itself is built like a proper ogre, with a bit of a rotund quality. It has lasting appeal. The criticism I have for it is something I believe may just be a matter of taste - The colors of blue used. They seem too clean and don't seem the colors Ogres would have an affinity for. But, then, perhaps the colors were part of the touch you were trying to give the picture to communicate the "knight" aspect of the character...?

Altogether, two thumbs enthusiastically up.
