Love the cut out feel and the lines. Your style is great and the shading is really nice. I only wish there was more space ahead of him, the direction he's looking, and less behind him as it would balance out the picture and show the viewer where he's headed, right now your eyes try to follow his eyeline and the stop at the end of the picture is too drastic next to the amount of space behind him
ah thank you for pointing that out! actually, at first, I had him more in the middle (so there was more space in front of him AND behind him, sort of balanced), but then the 'smart-me' inside thought ; how can i convey to the viewers that he's currently walking/heading somewhere , in other words, not just standing there. So, i thought, I sort of chopped down the space in front of him to make him look like he's 'walking out of the picture'.
But I guess, it had the reverse effect I was looking for... i might upload the version with more space in front of him later on Thank you so much for your feedback! <3
