This is a critique you requested through ~critiqueme. First, I do have a personal statement that I will send in a note.
I like the overall deviation, the concept and the compostion, but I have some advice about the texture you used. Over all, it works in the image, but I would advise that next time you get rid of the long lines that cross over important areas like the man's head and the draperies. How do you do this? When you place your texture as the new layer, use your clone tool to blend in the black lines with the rest of the texture. I do this all of the time and it works wonders.
If it's something you want, okay, but be aware that it can also be a distraction to what is important in your image. You should always try to create an effective deviation. And remember, I'm going to be direct and honest with you. Many deviants who comments to a deviation are afraid to be truthful or not sure how to express themselves, or don't want to be rude. You know? They pat you on the back and make you feel like you've done no wrong when there are areas to improve. So I'm saying, choice is one thing, but make sure you're making choices that makes your deviation look it's best.
