    So the thing is that I'm pretty happy with how this turned out. But, I'm wary, because I know I have a lot to learn, I want advice on how to improve this. What mistakes am I making that I'm not seeing?
    I'm trying to keep it loose and sketchy while controlling the composition.

    It looks to me like you just need to let your imagination play with it a little more. I'm not saying it needs to be cheerful like my edit makes it, but there's not really anything going on here. What is that person camping on that hill for? I'd probably set my tent right directly below that point to keep the wind off of me in an effort to help retain my heat. Not that you need to be entirely realistic. Just add some personality.

    Sketchbook

    I mean, would it be so bad if all anyone remembers about me is that I was a lover of art, of women, and wine? Perhaps I reach too far.

    Thank you David! That's a really good point! I guess I got really caught up in small things and forgot about the "why" of the piece. Also, does that snowman have a pirate hat? Love it! Thank's for taking the time to help me with this!
