    I wanted to get criquite on this sketch first before cleaning, fixing, and detailing stuff on it

    I'm trying to stick with the color palette for this piece but I need critique on the color use. I think I've also need critique on the general scene composition and if the subjects involved are drawn in proportion to the angle I decided to use.

    I'll post another progress picture of it, maybe after the critique here

    I honestly can’t even tell what I’m supposed to be looking at. Reduce your painting to black and white (or monochrome if you want colour) - is it clear? If not, adding four more colours won’t help either.
