Alright, resizing was a good move. The one thing I'd start to work on now is how folds work on clothes and how they drape. It's not something that you will learn in a day, but you can always do a few google image searches.

it also pays to note that the only pictures I can find from flowing trenchcoats online are from other game art. This tells us that it's not a very comfortable cloth in which to do action moves.

On the anatomy front, the bent leg is vague in volume and the upper leg is really short. Keep working on this stage by stage and you'll get there.

I touched on the upper half of the cloak and some on the paints, just wondering if this is the right direction I used your links as some references for the fabric.

Still too bulky. You don't have enough recessed areas and darkness. Seems as if he's inflated under the coat on the arm. I surely suggest you put on some cloth and take some pictures in that pose... if you can hold that pose. If you can't, it's very probable that pose is not worthwhile.

Pose indeed pretty weird, very hard to figure out the gravity for the trench coat.Looks like he is laying down on his side. Probably it might work if you use  down to top perspective. Also guitar heck headpiece belongs to classical instrument, body - to electrical. Perhaps, just a note.=)

Hmm. I'd like to see the reference for this. I can tell you've made very heavy use of a reference, and I really recognize the pose.
