Ahh, wonderful! Brilliant use of soft colours, and the way you let the background remain so roughly done.. an excellent choice =)

If there was something to point my finger at, it would that the almost white area to the left tends to pull my eyes away from the right half of the painting. I think you could have avoided that by toning down the contrast a bit, or lighten up the right side of the painting.. however, that is just my personal opinion. I don't know if anyone else feels the same way.

Anyways, the work you've done here amaze me ^^

Is it wrong the background really drew me in more than the main figure? This looks great. I hope your friend has an awesome birthday.
