    The drawing is nice and clean, but the poses look copied from somewhere else, like all the characters were superimposed from various sources. The running guy-with-the-mohawk-in-the-front's chest looks strangely flat and the composition is hardly apparent. These are interesting characters - I'd like to see them in a different not-so-posing situation.
    You want some? 'Cause you're looking at it like you want some.

    The composition is the biggest problem, before the anatomy, before the character designs, before the linework. Where are the different characters coming from, and where are they going? Where are they in relation to each other? How does each one's pose tell you something about them? Where, and in what order, do you want the viewer to look? And how do you want them to feel?

    Someone's been looking through Hogarth's Dynamic Figures.

    I agree with Elwell that composition is a bit of an issue. Right now my eyes are drawn to the big rock-guy, mostly because of the bold outline. There really are a lot of things you should sit down and consider when doing a picture like this with so many varied characters. Try a bunch of different layouts in thumbnail or rough form, so it's all clear before you move in to detail.

    Anatomy still needs work, there's some that looks like you've memorized without really understanding how those muscles attach.

    Anyway, it's a nice effort, and the only way to get better is just to keep doing them. Just try to consider all the elements as you are working on it. It'll take time, but it'll be well worth it.
