A very impressive piece. But I'm used to no less than impressive from you. The angle is interesting, the mood is solid. The textures work really well, and the piece has a very rough look about it that I really apreciate. And I can see what you were going for. And it worked out perfectly, I'd say. It really captures that oldschool mob look. The abandoned alley, the trash on the ground, the style of the windows, the graffiti. The guy with a hat and a long coat. There's just one thing that bothers me, and that is the car. The car just looks unpolished compared to the rest. Though most the detail in the rest of the piece is texture, the car looks out of place, because it isn't textured. (Not that it should be, but it's too rough and painted to fit in.) I think you should work it out a bit more, just the care. Right now it's too rough, not crispy, not edgy enough. Not like the rest of the piece.
But again, this is overall a very impressive piece.
What do you think?

Please do more "rough" stuff like this. It is AMAZING! There is quiiiiite a bit of detail, but I think the sketchiness of it works REALLY well. Sometimes work can get too polished; this is just right

personally i would blur out the car on the front with "Lens Blur" because i think that it destroys the balance.

I like the untold story of an image, after closer inspection, you could say that what they're doing is poetry, the irony being that they gonna atack a poetry bookstore (good coverup firm):)).

Very nice, for my own, i think that the only thing missing are details on the car in the foreground, especially on the lights and bumper. The background is very nice. Good job.

Although I agree with the Critique, I don't think that car is out of place. It's on the foreground, therefor the camera is not focussed on it, therefor it has only small amount of detail.

Absolutely brilliant and I'd love to see more.

On another note, you actually inspire me to draw more, model more and put more energy into my study. Thanks for that.

Putting more detail into this would be well worth the time... we almost never see any 1920s stuff. The concept is nice :D

Nice work man! This composition & perspective works well. I feel like I'm a participant... crouching near the car waiting to attack or something : ) The eye movement (for me at least) actually led from the people, down the ramp, past the car... along the ground, to me the viewer.

I am so enamored with your art, it's kind of ridiculous. The detail on the bricks and the light coming off of the fire escape up there and the dirt on the little windows...oops, I think I just drooled a little bit!

Great work, very atmospheric! I love the car in the foreground, really puts me in the scene like im crouching behind it. The little bright red marks dotted around are distracting my eye a little tho.

Uh oh, some shady business going on here. D:<

This is great; I absolutely love the depth of field you created with the car against the ladder, and your perspective is really nice. I also love the shading you did for the door's lamp. :B

A few things I've noticed; I know this is supposed to be a rough piece, but maybe put a little more detail in the second gargoyle (the left one) so that it matches more with the first. Also, I'm a bit confused as to where the railing ends in the top right corner.

But those are just my thoughts. It's a really awesome piece!
