Looks like a good start. On the left helm, the reflections towards the upper right look off. On the right one some volume is getting lost, especially towards the top.
Were these photo based?
Thanks for the comment and yes absolutely these were photobased, is it wrong doing so ?

Working from other peoples photos and paintings can help you learn color use, composition, and other techniques and lighting doesn't change if you take a long time.

Working from life also lets you study the same subject from multiple angles and with any kind of lighting you want (with still lifes, at least), and always in enough detail.
I understand what you mean, thanks for the advice i'll work this way more often in the future, thanks again
