I think this piece is looks great, I'm always a sucker for a good Street Fighter painting.
A couple things look like they could use some a bit of tweaking. I think that the claw should stick out at more of a right angle to the hand instead of it pointing upwards. It might help to straighten out the hairline on the reflection of Vega too, right now it's at kind of a slant. it also looks like the metal around the mirror could use a bit more contrast, sometimes you can achieve this just by using the dodge tool in photoshop on the highlights. Lastly, the light appears to be coming from slightly behind Vega in the mirror while the Vega without the mask seems to be strongly lit from the front.
Overall though, I really like this pic and it does a lot right. Shoryuken!

Hey there! I agree with the above post, also the right arm that is being shadowed by the left arm with the claw, it seems a little flat as there is not alot of tonal range near the shoulder and muscles.
Hope this helps

hey there, Looking great! I also noticed that the claws are at a strange angle, the should follow the line of his arm.
Also I noticed a chandelier above Vega in the mirror image and there is some nice yellow splash light on his traps and shoulders but there is none of that light on him while he's wearing the robe. The chandelier would still be above him on both sides of the mirror right? might be nice to include some of that splash light on the green robe as well... looking great though!

Love the painting in the background, smart way to bring in some of his story into the image. There are two things that bug me:
1. The claw is still at a strange angle; I think it would look sturdier if it was more in line with the highlight in his arm.
2. Is there any particular reason you went with green candle light?
