    Sure. Glad you asked.

    I don't feel like I'm connecting with the characters in the scene. Perhaps more detail on the faces and unique styles of attire would allow me to better understand their backgrounds. Some shading could really improve the overall feel, and let me know if this is more of a daytime setting, or late evening. Instead of the bird's eye view, a slanted 60 degree angle of the scene would allow for depth and form to really show up.
    And as always, "happy little bushes" make all the difference.

    I can't wait for the next one!

    That technique may work with some city boy amateurs.
    But a country lad with a Caterpillar bull dozer would not even be slowed down. I probably could borrow my neighbor's across the road, a lot of folks have mechanized equipment out in farming areas.
    Does your check point have flank security? What is to keep a rifle fire team from out flanking the check point and coming up from your rear?

    Not picking at you, just posting some observations to think about.

    You're the one that wanted to share a drawing, and then asked for suggestions. I was only offering help.

    I think folks would see a bull dozer or tractor coming their way. I thought it would be obvious that you would need some "armed" guards at a post like this to make it (or any checkpoint) work.

    The other obvious is the "country lad" a looter that has come to rape and pillage? If not he would be allowed to go through anyway if he had a purpose or a desire to help out people in that area. As far as flank security. Their is no fool proof way to secure an area unless you have the man power to overcome it. Even with that maybe the local thugs created a drone that can drop bombs on your "flank security". This is just a better method than just leaving a road open for anyone to come and go as they please.

    How 'bout make the people more appealing....(but no Rebel Flag, that's been banned I heard)

    And I would probably put in an anti-Caterpillar 960 Track Loader devise thing. Other than that I think you got it licked.

    Now, what time is recess and do they still make you take naps on little roll up mattress like things?

    PS Have you met my friend BuggyBugOutBag?
