    First impression is that you should use the image attachment feature so that a thumbnail shows up in the forum page. Second reaction is that I have to scroll right to see anything. Reduce the picture size a bit when posting it here. I know the aspect ratio is set.

    Third - Leave room for the title. Where would you put it right now?

    Fourth - Work on using values to define form. The critter's neck seems fairly rounded and solid compared to the head and plumes.

    Fifth - Use sharp highlights, especially where the lightning emerges from the mouth. It will illuminate anything near it. The closer it is, the sharper the highlight. This also helps define form.
    Take a look at my series of in-depth critiques, like this one of Salvador Dali's hidden portrait of Lincoln.

    Scott's Sketchbook: Check out my sketchbook. Will swap C&Cs.
