A quick digital sketch I did.
It took about two hours total in photo shop, which is considerably less than the usual 15 to 20 hours I spend on a digital piece.

I'm trying out a new approach in an attempt to create a loser, free-er style. I'm trying not to focus on every detail so much, and pay more attention to where I want the viewer's attention to be.

Not bad, but I like the other style/stuff in your gallery better.
Still it's good to experiment, and the focus point of a piece is always important.

Thanks. Looking back on the piece now, I think it definitely does lack something, but yeah it worked as a short exercise.
Anyway I'd love to get some advice on how I can improve. Can you go into more detail about what you were saying about the focus of a piece being important?

Yeah- the focus point is where you want the viewer's eye/attention to be drawn. Like what you mentioned above.
Here we look at her face, due to the lighting, and well, because there's not much else to look at.
Other general tips- backgrounds, even if not done well will add a lot to your pics. Finding a style you can call your own is a good thing. And practice practice practice.
Also draw from real life- no, not a pic you took of real life, real real life. Study the color of shadows and the like.

What program did you use?
