    Merman critique wanted

    Hey there, I'm less than satisfied with this image this far and am not yet experienced enough to know why. I'm still especially inexperienced in color and contrast, depth, etc etc. This is pre any final rendering, but any tips on how you might go about that would also be much appreciated. If anyone has time for a paintover or redline or anything, those would be extra especially nice!

    It's intended to be an underwater shot, looking down at a cave floor, with this merman holding a jewel of interest into some light that's filtering into the cave.

    Thank you guys, hope to find you well.

    This looks really cool so far! The thing that doesn't read well for me is the beam of light. It kind of seems like the hole is behind him, but the beam's hitting the stone he's holding in front of him. Maybe you could make it coming from above or offscreen. Or maybe it's just me I dunno.
