Kinda cool . Is a bit different from your usual colorful works that I remember you calling "Rainbow barf" once. Good use of more conventional greys, blacks, and whites.
Critique wise, some of the usual anatomical problems still crop up from the face. The lips are too forward, and the jawline looks a little off as well, sloping down too quickly rather than subtly. Here's an example of a face in profile that's pretty good for using as a reference [link]
Now, another smaller critique is the bird. I like the bird so far, and I wish you could have finished him a bit more to go with the rest of the image. Also his wings look a little too on the stiff side, but other than that it's good. In fact I like the use of the background with the black line design, the flower, and the big at the bottom. Glad it got you out of your art funk
Yea, hopefully by pointing it out to ya, can avoid that sort of thing done in the future . And as far as the lack of colors in this, very good job. You should do something like this a little more often. Some of the more artsy fartsy sorta stuff.
