Great start man. A good sense of light going on there. I like the secondary source of light you placed rather than just throwing one intense light source.
It's nice that you didnt throw in too many distracting colors. A small pallette is sometimes the best and quite challenging by itself.
Since it's painter work you can easily go over the anatomy and pose and redo parts.
But all in all, great attempt. Good seeing u on Sunday.
