    On the bear... it seems the focus is messed up. The hairs of the bear should be clear and the mountains clear... you seem to have it backward.

    For the chicken man, the light passing through his feathers (fur?) should have a red tint to it like the rest of the lighting. He also seems very well lit considering the surroundings and the light from behind.

    I'm pretty sure you could make these more believable if you picked up some reference.
    Problems I see:
    Bears have five fingers and no opposable thumb.
    The salmon head has misplaced/missing structures.
    The backgrounds of the images don't seem to fit with the creatures.

    You have great background sense. but What you are drawing is slightly out of context. There need to be ripples and more splashing in the water. And it is true that bears cannot grip things. But if all art was based upon reality it would be boring. If you are going for a real look you need to have a good knowledge on what is real. And from there you can bend reality to bring the chicken warriors of the Colonel Sanders to life. But the most inportant thing is keep learning.

    For all that I am, And for all that I have done.
    To hold on tight, Is all that I've known.
    To let it go, Is to tear it from my flesh.
    But to hold on, May mean my death.
    So I look to the stars, And All that I could be.
    And I will fly away, Bloody, Torn, And Free.

    You need to lighten up the ground/foreground that you're character is standing on, to just highlight them out. (But what you've done with the background is fine so far)

    The blood pouring out of the bear's neck looks quite odd, due to the sepparate shoots of blood running out. (Like a waterballoon with multiple holes in it, being filled with water) Try just having the blood splatter out.

    The pose looks a tad awkward as well. By the way are you trying to make the Chicken warrior heroic or villainous? As at the moment it has a haunting aura, due to the opened beak, and wide-open almost 'determined' eyes that make it seem to be a tenacious killer.
