    Interesting figure in the center I think it shows potential.

    You are letting yourself down in several sections though.

    The colouring is sloppy and haphazard in several areas.

    The fire, if that's what it is, looks terrible.

    The guy crouching is completely flat and distorted and I unfortunately cannot make out what the green object is that's next to him.

    I'm sorry if that sounds harsh, but I think you are capable of much more. Looking at this picture it seems all your energy was spent on the center figure, while the rest suffered from a lack of technique combined a loss of interest. The fire for example, what effect is it having on its surrounding environment? What is it actually burning on? What are the white lines above the centre figures head?

    A piece like this requires a fair amount of exclusive referencing, on top of a strong foundation in the basics.

    I think you need to study more on anatomy, perspective/depth and lighting.

    I agree with Star Eater.

    I could add that while the idea of placing dark figures on nearly white background has merit, you've manage to "lose" the central figure's head in the background - it is too light and too close in value to the sky. You can easily make her pale and blond as intended, without making her as white as snow. (Same is true for the kneeling guy.)
