    Really nice work so far! I'd just have to say that maybe you should add some more faint clouds to the sky to break up that heavy blue space, and those mountains have the same level of details as the foreground figures.... Add some atmospheric perspective and redo alot of those shapes with a larger brush. Might also want to punch up the contrast in those trees: they're a touch flat. Love the dandelions and the butterfly on his axe!

    I don't care what you believe in, just believe in it.

    I liked the earlier version better. That strong diagonal from the mountains overwhelms everything. Before, the girl's arm and the ax were the only diagonals in an otherwise perpendicular composition, which emphasized both the relationship between the characters and the concept of the piece (innocence vs. violence). Now that's been lost.
