You're off to a good start there. Here are some thoughts:

First impression is that too much of the image is in the lower half of the values spectrum. Perhaps that "dark" look is intended, in which case I'll reserve judgement for the final result.

The three poses don't really work compositionally. If you're going for that Alex Ross sort of thing, I wonder if they need to be closer together, and with variation in their posture.

Or if you're going for more of a God of War action scene then you could really push the character poses you're using.

Welcome el.daiblo.

I'd say that the speedpainting thread here is definitely the best for learning purposes, or if you prefer books, I'd recommend getting this:
