this guy is desperate/ anxious for a taxi...
(and for allot of other reasons too)


visually...
there are allot of interesting forms going on
in and around the face...
less so with arm and hand
so I find myself looking at the face, mostly

there are allot of things to see in the face
I like the heave of the chest too

Do some more, I like the movement. It feels free

Really, I think the green should be blue (to go with the yellow) OR switch the yellow to pink (to go with the green).

You have shades of grey then, like, two colors. Yellow and green look kinda icky, turns the whole thing brown (and not a nice brown!) Maybe this is part of the "stress factor" but if you <i>must</i> use green and yellow maybe get some neon paint, (?) that'd be very stressful --and it'd be bright enough to ward off muddyness.

I too like the movement, the style <b>everything</b> but the colors. Very nice!
