    I think one thing is that almost everything in the picture has the same degree of light reflecting on it, and with as much as there is it looks like everything is made of really reflective material, even the parts that are shined metal probably shouldn't have as much as you put on there. I would imagine that most cloth in the picture would have very few highlights at all, same with the druid's fur since it appears so shaggy and would probably disperse the light alot even if it was smooth. You did a good job with the gradation of value on the cloth and fur, I'd just tone down the brightness in those parts to keep it relative to the metal.

    The only parts that should be bright white are the sides of an object that are directly perpendicular to the incoming light, and only then if you have a really bright light source, so on a curved object like the dwarf's shoulderpad, there should only be a small dot of white exactly where the light hits it and then make a smooth transition to darker values as the metal curves.

    I'm assuming you ment to use a fairly bright light source, so you might want to consider showing some of the color reflected on the shiny metal of the dwarf and paladin's armor(kinda the same effect you have with blue of the lightning showing on the armor and the gnome's shield, just thinking of every shiny object as a relatively dim light source).

    Well, that's my rant for the day, good luck.

    Gotta agree with what Cyrus said. It's all too shiny and glowing. Maybe change the background as well. Isn't appealing to me.
    Try to make this whole picture more gloomy.
    Apart from that, good work.

    All I can add is change the bg. Make it darker, the clouds are just distracting and don't seem to fit well.

    Try painting in layers...if not use masking....the dwarf/knight part looks like there's a distinct line separating them and not as thought the knight is behind the dwarf. Also the problem with the Knight's shoulders......one's higher than the other.


    The background change looks spiffy....love how you textured the grass.
