    there's not a whole lot to comment on when you yourself know what's wrong with it--what you've actually decided to render looks great, particularly the motorcycle and the gun, skull and helmet. but the entire background is a vague, unresolved mess. it's ok to leave all the attention on the foreground and have the background mostly be silhouettes of buildings on fire (since you probably dont wan't to crowd the composition anyhow), but you really ought to at least render the background in the same style as the foreground.

    the motorcycle and death are of course the central focus and make it worth working out the rest of the piece. it looks like the motorcycle is hovering a bit on the background, especially with the white outline around the bike clearly visible.. parts of the motorcycle (like the wheels and wheel covers) look like photoshop whereas the forks and main body of the motorcycle look like they've been scanned, try to harmonize the whole drawing in one style or the other.

    reference would be a good diea for better resolving the near thigh of death (is it on fire, or is that light on his pantleg?), as well as flesh out (no pun intended) his leather jacket better.

    basically you've got all the foundations set for a pretty nice looking piece--there's nothing i can tell you that you probably don't already realize when you look at this piece. so consider it time to put away excuses for why it's not finished and take the time to finish it. the motorcycle looks awesome, bring the rest of the image up to that level.

    the weels are like... clean and shiny, but the character is... well look at it...
    it's a bad contrast...
    besides, the hole thing is too black...

    i really like it. but it would be a cooler concept for ghostrider, u know that comic character on a chopper.
    and it kind reminds me of a nazi, dont know why.
    but black is beutyfull and this is pure black.

    yeah i know it was a rush and excuses are -excuses.i like working in black and most of the time if i put in the effort i can make use of high contrast tones and they work great so no apologies for that, but i should be consistent throughout.and i'll find some time to rework the body with some refs because i did it off the top of my head and i wasn't happy with it.about the background i wanted to make areas of light and dark to silhoutte the guy-maybe just areas of light and dark?any suggestion would be appr.if anyone knows the name of the guy/gal who did the original pic i would like to get it so he/she can get the credit for the concept-anyway thanks guys for the crits-

    The style of the background and the actual piece are not meshing well. That's what hits me right away. You know what needs to be fixed, so get to it.

    He who asks is a fool for five minutes,
    but he who does not ask remains a fool forever.

    Starting over.
