Concept Art Class: Characters

Work from week one of concept art class!  Majesty-Realm-Apocalypse, a fantasy story with inspirations from God of War and Lord of the Rings.  First assignment was characters, and here's kind of what I had in my mind.

Here's the goddess of earth and nature.  I liked having the extra arms to give her a more tree-like silhouette.  She has two arms that weild swords, two arms with long grasping fingers, and two arms on top for casting magic.  Her legs end in a bundle of roots, and she plants herself to absorb life from the earth.  Other than that she floats.
Here's the vessel of the god of water.  In my mind, the god of water isn't personified by himself.  He imbues his spirit into dead corpses of sailors, pirates, other people who have died at sea.  The body then possesses his powers and strength to control water.  This guy I was trying to create a sailor that walked the plank (bag over his head, shackles).
