I'd say to not be too scared to let the cavern get darker. Let the viewer make up the lost detail on their own. Richard Bunkall did that a lot.
If you darken it up then you could make the fire and glowing things seem like they are lighting it more. If you paint the green around the light source opaquely it will make the glow seem thicker, so to speak. Here's an example of what I mean
You have that going on a bit, but I feel like you could push it more. There is just a lot of ambient light going that makes it feel a lot more comfortable than a place like that should feel.
You could even bring some of that fog from the BG in closer, darken up the area around the monster in the BG and bring up the glow of his eyes. Depending on how intense you want his eyes to glow you can put a bit of that color on the stalagmites and stalactites in front of him as well as the fog itself.
Also it looks like the little one's foot is on top of the light, which is a little weird and is loosing the illusion of depth.
I hope this is somehow helpful, and didn't come off as dickish. I'm still getting used to giving critique to people and not coming off like I'm an asshole haha. I think the overall idea is cool. I get a good sense of the two character's personalities and I do like how you can barely see the beast in the back. That fire is bad ass too. I can't wait to see where this goes.

I',ve tried implementing the above forementioned C&Cs. Definitely still feels like there's more to do though.

I think that even though you have a very strong colored light source, the illuminated objects shouldn't be that green. They have their own colors, which I believe should show more. Same goes for the highlights - definitely green tinted, but not absolutely the same as the lightsource. I see you've used a small brush to precisely build your highlights, but I'd suggest using larger, flat brushes to build your forms - and then, when you get to the polishing part use smaller brushes to add subtle highlights.
Take a look at this site - LINK , it has a lot of information on colors, which play a huge role in your image. Hope I've helped some and looking forward to seeing the next wip
