    The top one:
    Not a fan of the scene or lack other of. No ground, no definition, etc.
    The characters lack coherent lighting direction - I would figure the spark would give you some point of reference, but not so much.
    The hands and feet of the left guy look oddly huge, and the face pulled down.
    The shield and helmet look totally just copy/pasted texture. No actual curvature, contour, or what not. Very flat.
    What's up with the bike handlebar tassels on the end of the helmet?

    Though, oddly, sword guy's legs and feet look pretty damn well. .. excluding the lighting issue.

    Bottom one:
    Things are too smooth. The eye sockets, mouth, inner ear, collar, etc.
    the eyes also need work.
    Also suffering from a light direction.
    The flowers look copy/pasted on.. could use a shadow and some deviations.
    My commentary is a gift to you.

    that background needs some improvement but otherwise is looking interesting.
