    Basilisk and Lizard face off

    Admittedly this was bit more of an ex tempore, "blow some artistic steam" image, but I'd be happy to get critique on this, since everything is still in a workable stage.
    (To those not familiar, the characters are Marvel's Basilisk and The Lizard, with some artistic liberties: https://www.dropbox.com/s/41q4ud3p0ujtph3/lizards.jpg )

    Well, IMO you have a nice, dynamic composition with expressive characters. Now, why don't you go further by working on masses and volume to make disappear the "scribbling"?
    Another point is that I feel the "bright" area behind the lezard is too bright without any justification. maybe toning down this area could be beneficial.

    I think the tail is not helping the composition at all, maybe point it at the other lizard or sth? Nice work so far otherwise

    What I think is most disrupting are the two tangents almost in the centre of the piece: The head of the lizard against the basilisk hind leg and the basilisk head against the lizard's tail. Apart from that, the composition is quite dynamic.

    Tweaked the tail position, I'll have to see if the hind leg is better if it overlaps more with the lizard:
