Subject title: A concept for a character.

I drew this about two months ago and I worked on it for quite some time. I feel it's not finished and something seems really off. The problem is, I can't really fix it. I would really appreciate a critique on this drawing because it is my first serious concept art-ish experiment.
Here's a link for the full resolution I've worked on:

You can use this for a video critique! I'd be more than happy to see one.

I would suggest tightening up the lines and possibly blending the colors more. And less arrow in chesty. Jk lol but good work looks great.

Yeah you really gotta smooth out the texture. I think this one would make a great video critique.

I attempted a few quick fixes.

His skin was kinda green and lifeless so I threw some red in there. I realize he's dying but he's still alive.
The whole thing is pretty muddy overall. I would just work on you blending and values. Do value studies.
My other points are on the image.

I didn't intend to, but I seem to have made him more sad :P

Thank you all for the comments! Pixlix, I like what you've done to the drawing! I'll try to work on it a bit more, even redo it if I have the time. I totally agree that my values are off and the colors are muddy. I always try to get away from too saturated colors and my colors always end up dead and unvaried. Thank you! I'm looking forward to more critiques. (-:

The left hand is too large in regards to perspective, I think.
