    nice piece, other than detailing it (which isn't really a crit, just something you could do with it), I'd suggest reducing the opacity of the texture as it's really quite obviously a texture overlay. Hence I think the first picture looks best as it flows better.

    EDIT: (I guess what I'm saying is that it's a fairly undetailed picture with nice sweeping strokes and the texture only detracts from that, as the texture has more detail than the painting itself.)

    that's not a sketch. It's a rough painting.

    I'll not talk about the style, but...i haven't found any telling story in your picture. That's the real problem for me...
    Good luck

    well, it is telling stories. its just if you need a picture that tells you everything or one that keeps an open end and requires your imagination. I think its nice. It has a nice dark mood or something lost in thoughts, like the german romantic painter "Caspar David Friedrich" did.

    Think about your values more. Where should the darkest darks go, where the lightest light?
    Should the sky be that dark against the ground? Don't spread out your dark values too much
    or it looks like you're trying to hide your drawing problems.

    Edge control. Use sharper edges where you want to direct the viewer's eye
    Which edges sharper , which softer?

    You established a nice mood. Now go back in and refine it.
    Make it an excellent piece in stead of just a good one
