hi ppl.i need all ur guideline to be a concept artist....please help me
Could you make the picture a little bit bigger so its easyer to see? But at this stage, i can say right away that you should look over your values:
As you can se when you turn the picture to B&W some of the forms mash toghether, which makes them hard to read, you can fix that by value separate them.
As for the character the design, and gesture, think more - what is he doing, who is he, how does he move, etc.
Change that red eye color it distracts us from your piece, open the character more his silhouette is too tight, and I dont know what that circle is by the skull, if it is supposed to be some kind of morbid skip-it then you should have the circle away from the skull right now it looks like it was a work line you forgot to erase. Also try breaking up the thick solid line on his back and see what that does (make the plates overlap like the other ones)

A Cartoonist is just a lazy Animator.
Don't crop the picture like that: the whole thing looks cramped, the skull is almost cut off (it looks like you crammed it in there because you ran out of paper), and the composition is very boring. Think of how you crop the picture, right not it looks rather amateurish. Gesture has already been mentioned, and is very Important and will make him more interesting to look at if done right.
I guess the strong red in his eyes are suppose to make them stand out, but it doesn't really work. Just picking the most saturated color will not achieve that effect. Instead I'm looking at his amulet, which has a different color and contrasts to his otherwise warm color scheme, which makes it pop out. Try using that kind of contrast to things you want people to focus on instead.
Thanks you ppl....i will make my correction and work hard to become the best....

fast moving creature with no visual organ...move with the help of sound and vibrations (long ears)......lives in hell

Wouldn't those chains and things kinda make it harder for it to hear? Also it has pointy ears and long legs, but the fact that it's a runner and uses the ears to see doesn't really come across. It's more like a gladiator/Kratos-dog-rat hybrid. As in I can believe it runs fast if someone said that, but judging from the name "speed demon" I think running fast should be it's main thing, make that point visually clear, and look less like a gladiator because it's not really coming through for me at first glance.
@ Hexokinase : i wanted it to be like anubite(dog)..
I would also add that leaving that area around his eyes like that empty makes it look unfinished. If he doesn't have the eyes that's cool but create something interesting in that area. If he's a speed demon, I don't think being blind would be a good idea.
