I think this art is great, the lighting/shading creates a great atmosphere and quite a good emotion-filled perspective if you look deep into the art and then take in the lttle details, this isn't particualy some art I would like, but the presentation is great and the SFM is great (as per usual) but I can see this apealing to some people... just not my thing... It isn't your best work, but it is great and can leave a lasting impact if you look at it in a particular perspective.

(I did do this on my phone so there will be a few problems)
What do you think?

Good evening. :)
Now before I start critiquing this beautiful gem, I'd like to point out that I haven't seen any of your other works, so please bare with me on this...

The image you created in this is absolutely beautiful. I'm a big fan of music and especially piano, and this just captured my eyes when I was scrolling through critiques (to see how others critique art).
The light shining down on the hooded figure is beautiful, but almost like a sorrowful beautiful (as you said, sitting here wasted and wounded at this old piano).
How I imagined this at first sight... was like the man wanted to show the people his music but can't express it when there's no audience. It's like he wants to open up and show the world what he's capable of!... but he can't. He can't do it, and that just struck the soft part of my heart.
I hate it when musicians aren't able to express themselves through their music. So this is absolutely beautiful. (that was said wrong... let me try again)

When musicians aren't able to express their feelings passionately through music, they become like this. Hurt, saddened, and most of all... lonely. Because no one is there to listen to them.
But, that's like me. I want to express myself, but I'm too shy, I'm too reserved to even take a peep from the cracks of my protective shell. And sometimes, playing for myself is better than nothing. But I guess the man in this portrait isn't able to play for himself because that doesn't satisfy him.

Anyways, I want to tell you that this is fantabulous. When I critique someone's art, whether "verbally" (like typing) or mentally, a 5/5 on any of the categories is impossible, and you my talented friend have done the impossible.

Thank you for your time.

NOW TIME TO ACTUALLY LIST SOME THINGS THAT I WOULD CHANGE OR ADD...
-there's one light on the right that's the odd one out, though it's very unnoticable. That light kind of ruins the image of "light pouring down from the left"
-the shading is good, and I guess since a piece of light is coming from the right the shadow of the piano is light, but if you remove the right light the shadow should be a tad bit darker.
-The piano should be branded; Steinway & Sons normally have their brand on the side and stand. Kawai, Baldwin, and Yamaha might also be good brands to label the grand. Unless you worry about copyright issues. Then put your own. Branding a piano is kind of an... important part of a piano. As a pianist, I do like to know what kind of piano it manufactured from. Though this is optional.
-The boxes (lighting or speakers, right?) are not unnoticable, but they don't seem important. Judging from the headwear the man is wearing, this must be 1700 or something, maybe early 1800. I don't think they have that kind of technology back then.

Well, this is a really good piece of art, I'll say that. :>

Impact: 5/5! Perfecto! BRAVO~! I love the mournful feeling this piece gives off, and yet it's peaceful. Impact doesn't mean surprise anyways. :)
Technique: I haven't seen your other works, but I feel like you're one to avoid those details like a persons facial features, fingers, feet, inside of the piano or the wooden floor (the angle changes it).
Originality: I haven't seen a piece of art like this, and to have the piano open and look good.... If you didn't use a reference, I'd be surprised! (did you?)
Vision: Visuality is awesome! A few things that didn't match in my opinion, but other than that it's great!

Oh yeah, before I go, your italicized section said "old piano". This may be a fact or opinion of mine, but back then there weren't exactly "black pianos". Normally they were just brown, and an upright-vertical, not grand. Sorry, again, my opinion or a fact.
What do you think?
