Experiment with black and white, trying to define shadows and light sources.

Nice. I like how the parts you can see kind of suggest the shapes of the things in shadow (like that ridge on the right side). I love this black and white ink-style stuff.

You could practice drawing textures on the brick wall to make the light look more diffuse.. but then the hard light fits the noir-y feel.

Brilliantly atmospheric, i love the texture on the walls. The only minor thing that bothers me is why there's a solid block of light behind the fence.... I'm sure there's a good reason though.

Quite nice. Simple, but nice.
