Hay your not getting any crits because this is looking pretty good!
The detail on the statue is great, love the strong shadows!
The only thing that bothers me, is that the baby dose kinda look like its been pasted on. So maybe if you softened some of the colours on the baby, I'm just not really feeling the blueish tones on the hands and feet.
Nice work though!
And welcome to the boards

I am gonna disagree here...i like the blue-ish tones here bc ...that's was babies look like when they come out lol...however to make the baby look like he belongs to the painting, you need to incorporate those colors that u used to make the baby into the rest of the painting. it will feel much more cohesive. i know its cutting it close to the deadline, but i think you could hustle
cool, good idea! i like it.
I like the colors too, tho i would see about that blue. it loooks good here, i agree but you can not explain where it comes from.
The sky sets the ambient light. you have many clouds so most of the light is skylight, and bouncing light but there is no blue and stones do not turn blue, paint would make no sense too.
Maybe try some green shade for a test, its easily done in PS.
My crit is that the stone socket looks like it had a lot more attention than the face and the clots on the face. i would give those part one more pass and add more range in the shadows, more details.
The baby does not link to the statue well. as you see the shadows in the lower part of the statue are very dark, you need this kind of shade for the shadows the baby would cast on the statue too.
The baby collides with the hand a bit too, the fingers on the statues hand are too bright, there should be some shadow and maybe a more fitting hand pose would be nice.
last thing ... baby colors, now i am not a baby expert but looking at the baby hand color i'd say.. frostbite
Maybe change the colors to a more healthy look or make the baby out of stone.
The person in the BG pops out a bit to strong IMO, maybe fog it a bit more and add some shadow at the feet
