You've already had some great suggestions, but for me the number 1 thing I'd do is flip the image! The action is from right to left which feels very unnatural and against the flow. The eye is used to reading an image from left to right, and so the action should flow in that direction as well 🙂
P.S I really like the little plants cut out of the bottom edge, very effective and creative!
@seanwelty Thanks. I had the biggest value contrast by far in the face to draw attention there. There's not much value difference within the hair - that's why I kept the background value a similar value to the hair so it didn't stand out as much. The black shadows in the reference were actually darker than I went and I wanted to draw the attention to the mouth/nose as they are what Ronnie is to me. I stayed more painterly away from those areas intentionally. Thank you for the input though, I really appreciate it.
