Well, what's the ref? I can't exactly tell what's wrong. Looks good.

Well they look ok but there isn't much here to critique. What you've painted here is very abstract and since it doesn't hurt to look at it, it looks ok. I could be better but mostly in subtle ways which are much trickery to learn and critique.

Your values are fine but they don't have much in terms of context so I don't know how to help improve without that context.

I think a reference would help, yes. Cant tell if this is an original design or a WarFrame (from the game... called warframe...)

Definitely looks like it. the overall body could be lighter, but it all depends on the lighting of the area that its in.
Sorta looks like theres some diffused light above him but hes in an otherwise dark room.
As we learned in the most recent sycralogical problems podcast though, it doesnt have to be 100 percent accurate if it looks appealing. And it does.
Keep it up man, maybe do another, but include the reference this time..? You would probably get more helpful advice than I can give
I draw stuff sometimes and it looks like this: (Latest work on page 8)
