How does it look?

It's a great start, however, there's room for improvement. For one, I'd say to use all of the space. Could have put the scout at 2/3s width, a bit farther away from the Scout text or moved everything towards the centre. As well as that, I'd say that you should somewhat fix the lighting. Not sure what the intended effect was, however, at least have the scout's face and hat visible.

Thank you for your feedback on it, also the lighting was meant to be like that.

Basically, one of your best assets in SFM should be lighting. 3-point is a must-have for almost all posters,

and does not have to be bright. I'd suggest toning down your main lights and using some back-lighting.

 

Also, mess around with posing of the hands and face, especially with the fingers.

Either use the guide, or work out your own method. Not a bad start.

http://www.photo-host.org/DZ6Another one that me and my friend made.

This may be good for a part of animation, but not as much as a single image.

The soldier is moving, but the scene is very static.

The soldier may even be good on the far left, however there isn't any detail or something of interest on the right and center, that part is totally empty.

Since you want the attenction focused on the soldier, and the rest as a background, it is better to put him on the scene by following the golden ratio rule.

as to that scout one, it's so dark it took me a few seconds to realise what he's holding, may want to make it more obvious

That's why I said I have to fix the posing

ah mk, I was thinking more along the lines of lighting, but that works too

I might fix the lighting, but I'm not sure.
