I had some time today and thought I would start working on my Albert and maybe get some advice, but then I had so much fun making it that instead of getting a concept and asking for advice I finished it.
(Asking for advice on a finished piece. Armature move I know)
Now it seems a bit boring . Not sure if its just me staring at it for too long or if it's just boring, so please let me know what you think and if I should change anything or everything or keep it the same?

I don't think its boring! I think you have a really interesting POV, lighting, and I think Albert is adorable! The piece as a whole really gets across the feeling of Albert walking to his desk on the first day.
If you wanted to take that to the next level, I think you could make Albert's face look a little more nervous, or concerned, or whatever you want, but his expression feels a little ambiguous to me. Another thought I had was that the desks and Albert's feet don't seen really grounded, they kind of feel like they are floating. Maybe a harder shadow at the bottom that fades as it moves away would help. I think maybe your shadows overall are a bit too soft.
Overall I really love this! Even though Albert is dead center I feel like that was the right compositional choice, and I really love the colors, lighting, and Albert! Good job!
Thank you so so much.. that helps more than you know. An extra set of eyes are so useful.
Oh my goodness I just submitted my Albert but sheesh getting a nice facial expression was quite hard will have to start working on those, but I definitely thing the extra shadows helped. Thank you very much

I love giraffes and this one looks like it can take care of himself
However maybe you could add different animals instead of people? I know, its more work tho
