Don't fret it Captain. It's just the way things go around here.

Ok you want some comments. Nice drawing, very cool.

As for your image, your lighting needs work:)

Create some funky highlites on the card to emphasise the depth.

The smokey thing is weird. It might look nice if it was more wispy.

OK, heres my two cents worth. I think it needs a little more depth to it. Heres what I would play with personally. His eyes seem alittle flat and somewhat displaced from him. The second thing is the cloud texture. It seems to me like the card is infront of the cloud with noise on top of it instead of truely within it. I would try rendering the cloud seperate, blurring it alittle to smooth it abit and then play with comp'ing it back to the card/background and tweak it till it looks good across both the card and the black background. What I might try to do since I like the cloud effect alot for this image, try giving it alittle bit more complexity. Since I would try comp'ing the image I might try creating a second or even a third cloud slightly different in texture and color, maybe more wispy. Render them seperatly and then comp those in ever so slightly to add to the effect but not steal the show. Keep us updated if you do make any changes. :)
