As a mans power and knowledge grows so the paths he may choose lessen more and more until he can choose only and whole what he must do.

oh and heres a college buddy of mine:
I see a couple of things here that are working to your disadvantage. One is that you picked a composition that is based off of very strong horizontal and vertical lines. That can make a composition very static and uninteresting. Another is that for an abandoned piece of architecture where homeless people are sheltering, it is much too clean. There should be stuff on that clean wall, on the ground, even hanging from the ceiling. Or, at least there should be variation in the textures and colors of those surfaces to make them look stained and rusty.
Lastly, the “bums” could be telling more of a story with their body language. They could be saying “we are miserable with life and with the cold” or “we are an angry mob planning the takeover of the world,” but instead they seem to be saying “we could use some marshmallows.”
One more suggestion: add a second light source to the scene. You will never be able to draw that backhoe if there is not some moonlight or something else to illuminate it a bit.
I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.
