Sadness and resignation just seem to be boiling off him.Such a weight of care. I really LOVE this piece at the same time I hate the despair it makes me feel.

I think the only criticism I could raise is that the figures radiating from the top of his head (and the upper sides) do not contribute as much to the feeling of despair as those from his beard.

Your art is alot like Chris Mars'. It has a wonderful eerie, disturbing quality to it. The figures and details are beautiful. :)
