This is a fantastic piece--I love how vibrant the colors are! You can really sense the movement there, and it's almost like you can hear the music that obviously inspired this piece. :)

I'm not super familiar with oil pastels, so forgive me if my critique seems amateur-ish or unhelpful. I like the way you've used colors here to convey an emotion rather than realism. The boldness is fantastic, overall. I think that the background is just a bit overwhelming because it's so saturated, as is the foreground. I wonder if you were able to put less color into the background if it might help Rob pop out a bit more. I love the details of the piece, but they seem a bit fuzzy. I know that pastels are hard to be precise with, so I would practice trying to be more precise with your lines and colors; overall, a bit of blending would also be helpful!

It's a lovely portrait and you've done a great job. Keep up the good work :)

I think this piece and "Twin Peaks: Agent Cooper" are great. This one, especially, has all the super-intense saturation that oil pastels are so good at providing. I think the values are spot on, and I love the multiple light sources as defined by the hints of blue coming from the right. I'd definitely love to see more oil pastel works from you. I'm relatively new to oil pastels, myself, so I'm not sure what tips I could provide to you in that area. I'd be hard pressed to find fault with anything here, composition included. Well done! :clap:

Awesome colours, as usual! Must have taken a lot of time, I'm impressed! I can't tell yo if you could improve for the pastels, unfortunately. I'm not good at traditional art. =/
