    Need your thoughts about Color

    Hey guys, here is a piece I've been working on, my problem is that I work on the cintiq and my other monitor doesn't display the same kind of colors at all.
    (Feels less saturated and blue and green shift a little)
    So I'd like your thoughts about it regarding contrast and color use. And about any other kind of critique would be great in fact

    Thanks !

    Here is another version, I upped the contrast a bit, maybe a little too much.

    Too much going on...too many centers of interest. Scale is off considerably (that person is tiny compared to the building windows/doors scale). Composition is weak - leads right to a chokepoint and no further. Sense of light is not present due to lack of understanding how light works in the environment.

    I would recommend spending some time with "Drawing Scenery" by Jack Hamm and Gurney's "Imaginiitve Realism".

    What would Caravaggio do?

    Okay, I've been simplifying the piece. I'm always getting this shift between the two monitors, kind of annoying.
