This is very nicely drawn, good linework and plenty of detail. The physiology is accurate and the inking confident.
The only thing letting this pic down is the composition. The main character is shown standing in a slightly odd but relaxed pose in the centre of the scene, which appears brightly lit even though it's at night. The `mid-shot' background reveals the relative emptiness of the location, which couples with the main guy's pose to take away any potential tension or dynamism the scene could have had.
It'd be well worth approaching this pic from a different angle - challenge yourself with interesting perspectives to add dynamism (rotate the direction we're seeing things from), work in more shadow for tension, and zoom the `camera' in much closer so the background becomes more unknown (and thus more potentially dangerous). I'd also suggest showing us less of the second figure - just a hint that someone might be lurking there, and perhaps a bit closer.
You've obviously got the drawing skills here... I strongly suggest you start working more on creating a scene, and asking yourself what sort of mood you want to evoke. Getting that right will make a good picture into a superb one. :)

Thanks for the constructive criticism. I will certainly start looking at what mood to convey from now on.

work in more shadow for tension:)
call me dumb but iassumed that this was nightime and that would be conveyed through color as would shadows.. the clean line "coloring book "style seems in vouge right now...
working in all the shadows by hatching would be cool, but i don't think that's what he's aiming for...

Thanks. As soon as i get some free time I'll try coloring it. I do see now what's missing. Something I'll try to put into future artwork.
