Really? When I think of Syd Mead's illustrations, the first thing that comes to mind about the people in his scenes are the highly unique futuristic clothes that each person wears, and they are often very eye-catching.

Maybe the figures are wearing uniforms such as school or work uniform? Personally, I think more unique figures is far more interesting to look at, since your job is to entertain the viewers with the visual narrative.

The big building with the tapered top is bumping right up against the top border of the image, and that's not a good thing for the composition. Either leave some breathing room (expand the canvas at top or lower the building), or have it actually going off the canvas clearly (so it's distinctly a crop).

Good day sir, your comments are actually right regarding the people based in Syd Mead's paintings, but in my mind, I realize that, I want those figures representing 3 guys having reunion, but as I continued to work on it, again, I reviewed his work and decided to make those clothes they are wearing unique. I decided that instead of 3 guys, I want them to become two showing 2 students taking rest while viewing the city scape after school then I also decided to add a dating couple viewing the city scape as well. I edited the tapered building to see the head/top of it and I bit darkened the left part of it so the eye will not go out of the canvas. Thank you.

You misunderstood which building I was talking about. It's the large building in the middle, not the one on the left.

The figures work pretty well. This image is shaping up nicely.

Good day sir, thank you very much. I see it, what I did is, I only cut a bit in the top of the building so that it will have a breathing room. Thank you.
