    One of the main problems I'm finding here is the lack of universal light source- The horse seems to have 2 strong sources, based on highlights on his head and legs, the monster has them all over the place, and the guy looks like he's illuminated (poorly) from the right. The major visible source of light, however, is from the rear- try to imagine how that would affect the shadows on everyone and then work on it. Nice work on the water, although I'm having trouble believing that the horse is standing in it at all. Furthermore, shouldn't the guy and the horse be a little more alarmed?

    Very nice work on the background though, and good use of color and mood in it. Just the foreground that needs work.

    much thanks, a lil advice please

    hi chagan, much thanks for the reply, it was very helpful. Although i have a question, actually more of a favor than a question. Would it be alright if you could draw in where the light source on the man and the monster would be? nothing too detailed or anything just a scribble to indicate where the light would shine on the subjects. It's just that it's difficult for me to imagine where the light source would shine (i'm really bad at lighting), would that be alright?

    Values - There is little sense of depth, try dropping the background back a little, it should help to define the foreground characters more.

    I'd probably put a light from the top right, like you've already started to do on the rider. I'd do it some of that marvelous yellow light you have in the background.

    I'd also put the rider closer to the monster and crop a bit of the water on the bottom. It would also look nice to have some shadows of leaves in some unitrusive places, since they're in a forest. You could also increase the size of the monster's head upwards, now it's kindof unclear that there really is a monster there due to the water.

    I did a crude sketch of where the highlighted and shadowed parts could look be in that light.

    right now i feel like my eye is drawn to the bright light background, i agree with whyatt, perhaps bring more of that light into the foreground and desaturate a bit in the back
