I very rarely ever get the chance to cruise around and comment on posted art - but tonight I had a little extra time on my hands. Which means I'm also wholly unqualified to give too much insights into the composition - but I know what I like - and I like this.
I dig the bold colors and lines in the first piece. I am especially fond of folks who use complementary colors in shadow, as you did with the face, and othe areas (red/green, yellow/blue). It harmonizes well for my eyes.
I assume the pen/ink and the other piece were studies for the larger image?
