    I hope this helps.

    That's really helpful manji! I always have a hard time managing tone, I'll try to keep my main tone use to 3 from now on, those thumbnails are really effective.

    Pete: That's some really nice textural work, I especially like the treatment on the background but I've seen you draw better characters. Definitely always like seeing an artist experiment!

    Way too dark. Separating the Bg, mid, and foregrounds gives it much more depth and clarity. I kept the mid ground dark, went with the lamp light to make the foreground the lightest section, and made the clouds a mid tone grey. I made the crow and grave marker more prominent like he is standing in front of it instead of it being behind him.

    I have to agree it is hard to tell if that is a bird or an ink blot on the top of that gravestone.

    It could benefit from more contrast to help separate the foreground, middleground, and background.
