According to the tittle, the man in the picture looks like being desperated in a crucial moment, bringing a suffocating energy that causes to him a strong painful change.
There are some things that become curious. The absence of face in the character looks mysterious, and the use of black lines, which provide an illustrating appearance to the work, are put together wisely with the movement and the anatomy. What's more, the signature in the corner helps for the equilibrium of the composition.
However, I find such a lack of this strengh and contrast that I love in your paintings. If you add more color next to the left part of the chest, you can bring out more its dinamism. You can also try to mark the abdomen lines even making it with a little watercolor.
Anyway, you have done a great work with the use of colours and the expression of your style. I hope you go on improving your skills.

Man is definitely learning to appear and looks like he is struggling with that. It's clearly observable that the man is confused, but not depressed. All the colors in my opinion symbolize his potential and abilities, which make him overall weak, because it's often so hard to come out of your own shell.
I love your style and this work only shows that it can be so various and that your imagination works really well - right use of this technique can emphasize different things and problems. It makes every piece of your artwork so special and unique.
The only thing that confuses me - is the second arm, an elbow looks a little too bizarre for me.
Overall - it's an amazing work! So clear and fresh!

Incredible ! Personally I think that you have a unique technique that allows you to transmit emotions through colors as well as through figures. The depth of this art piece is perfectly developed. Sadness, sorrow and dissapointment are some of the emotions that I am able to appreciate from your art work. Once again, as all of your art works, this was very inspirational. Wonderfull!!
