Knight shield model, feedback critique required

Hey all,

Finished up this model yesterday, looking to get some critique on it, so I can improve my future models. 
The model is based of Vadim Boyko shield concept. 
The model is sitting at around 6.5k tris.

    I like it!! I feel you could have made the red paint a little less symmetrical. That's my only critique though.

    Thanks!, Yeh you are right, it does seem a little too symmetrical, didn't notice that before.

    Pretty nice! I feel the engravings are too perfect though, I would have tried to give them some variety, since the shield is pretty beaten up they feel weird to me. The textures on the wood can use some more love, maybe increase the roughness so it feels more like dry wood and break the symmetry. Last, for the renders I feel like you can work a bit on the ilumination, look at these referents, they have stronger highlights and more contrast with the background, that will help you sell the model because it's already looking very cool!
