is meant to be green, but I took it into Photoshop and slapped a warm photofilter,
and bumped the curves little bit.
Here it is without color, see how most of the picture is around the same gray color:
I figured I better post this here since it's suddenly so in depth. Partial reference used so far, to ensure more accurate textures and representations of material. No direct ref, though.
Nice job with the refracted light in the breast plate's shadow though!
Not sure why this image isn't working...
This girl with the flame, for instance, the colors are completely unaffected by what would be a warm light coming from the fire, like http://www.flickr.com/photos/gnome_j/2772185541/ I can see a slight yellow tint but that fire is bright orange. Gathering references for your lighting scheme can help a lot, you'd be surprised how many colors can be hiding in any one object.
Quick & dirty paintover (note: I don't think you should actually do anything so ugly as this, per se ... I'm just saying you can sell "fire" a lot harder).
And I'm not really sure if you're making good compositional decisions. Draw more thumbnails and put more thought into where you want these pictures to be viewed from.
