This is just a doodle with a splash of soft pastel work. Enjoy....

Hah, I bet you hoped you'd escape crit by saying it's "just a doodle!" Just kidding. I actually like this one a lot. It feels the most complete of your recent spurt of posts. The color composition is fantastic. It could definitely be worked more, but you know what? I don't think it shout be. It has a strong sense of depth with the guy in the foreground, the house in the background, and the sky in the deep background (those clouds look so rad).

This isn't necessarily even a suggestion, since it looks great as-is, but the only thing that occurs to me is that his lips could be given the same amount of detail as his eyes. Eyes and lips are probably the noticeable features of the face (and they're the main focus of facial communication). That being said, it's just an option. If you were intentionally drawing focus to the eyes, leave it be. If not, let this just serve as a note of what you've done, without meaning to.

I like it!

Damn, you've been posting like crazy lately! The coloring and brushwork in the clouds is fantastic. I might need to steal that technique ;)
