Nice work

I would suggest trying to group similar controls onto the one handle where possible. Have the ankle translate on the same control as the ankle rotate. Same with the wrists, stick the translate and rotate on the same control.

And don't use custom attributes for rotation where the default XYZ rotations of an object will suffice. For example on your hips and neck control, they should be animatable with just the rotate tool.

A good effort for your first rig, remember the best way to improve your rigs is to animate with them as much as possible. Even just doing some simple animation tests a lot of rig issues will soon become painfully obvious.

The best rig is the rig that is easy to animate with..
Less controls but still ultimate control is the best.

Most animators dont like sliders or stuff like that. They want to be able to look at the screen all the time and just grab a handle and move it. 3 controllers for controlling the chest is no fun att all to animate with for example.
