Your characters have improved a lot! The values here are kind of muddy for a close-up shot, though. This value range usually works for your distance shots but if you're close to the subject like this I think you'd see more blacks/whites. But I wouldn't change it if it's a style preference. great job.
Very well done! I almost want you to keep it in monochrome as it somewhat conveys the feeling in your quote very well. Of course with what you can do I'm certainly looking forward to the colored version!
Keep it up!
