    This could use a lot more contrast!

    It's a pet peeve of mine when artists do this kind of thing. I grew up shooting a bow and have always loved archery.

    A bow is not a gun. You can't hold it out in front of you like that. The arrow should be parallel to your collar bone and the bow should be held out to your side.

    Burn this.

    More contrast would fix the issue, but it actually isn't the issue I don't think. You need more separation and more consistency. The darkest light must be lighter than the lightest shadow, otherwise the effect of light is ruined. If I squint at your drawing the value for the shadow and the value for the light blend together. The other thing is be consistent. I would think the left side of the rock would be in shadow, yet it's drawn light.

    The little boxes to the top right are supposed to illustrate how the values for shadow and light are not high contrast at all, but they are different.
