The John Carter of Mars Look

Fixed the leg. That doesn't change the lack of dynamics in the pose.   But sometimes it's cool to have a nice standing pose just to play with costume designs kind of like a paper doll.  Do they even make those anymore?
Having already come to the conclusion that all of these sketches are disposable there's nothing to fear from just trying anything at all with it.
Got rid of the football and gave him a dragon.  Is it going to try to eat him or is it his faithful steed, or just some random non threatening wildlife?  I'd rather you wrote that story, I'm not a writer.
He still doesn't have any actual clothes on, but maybe that's OK.  Edgar Rice Burroughs' John Carter of Mars books had people wearing "harness" but no actual clothing.  The shape of the harness is never really described except with words like "gorgeously decorated"  Or "gem encrusted" but the construction of it is left to the imagination.  This is one way I imagine it looking.
