    First impressions: Color choices are solid, you know what you're going for here. The cracked mud detail is also excellent.

    Second Impressions: This looks like its intended to be an illustration. What separates illustrations from other painting is storytelling. Often the story is EXTREMELY simple.

    Here the story seems to be "giant earth elemental rises and destroys helicoptor." That's a fine story, and you can push it farther.

    Right now that laval river is just sitting there to merely provide a light source (a good idea in and of itself). However, you can brig that lava into the narrative. Perhaps the elemental should be rising out of it directly, rather than behind it. You could alternatively, extend the river back to where he is rising from in the background.

    Also, relate the elemental to the helicoptor. Maybe he's swatting it. Maybe the force of him erupting from the ground creates a spray which hits the coptor.

    Don't be afraid to redraw your main figure and put him in an active pose. This looks like an active "Monster Destroys Something" narrative. Make that action happen!

    Finally, detail that coptor. It's a part of the story and it needs to be almost as detailed as the main figure

    The first question is whats the name of the picture, what shoul it to express?
    Its some vulcano creature?

    The shapes/anatomy need to be more specified - my opinion - is the creature more like a stone or has it some human/animal ground?
