:c I never draw her anymore since the group's dying. Damnit, she was my first pokemon OC
and the group was one of the best I've been in. I still ned to practice shading with both
opacity and solids but for this one it was with opacity.
Ughh, I already know I got it wrong at so many points.
I hate you anatomy. ;-;

The Compliment:

I like how cute she looks! Her hair is styled very nicely as is her bow. :3

The 'could use working on' bit:

The arms in my view, should be a bit longer. What I find useful is, if you try and get a
camera and get somebody take a picture of you doing the pose so you can copy directly
without worrying about anatomy. Plus it saves time trying to find the right reference!

The Critique:

I personally think you should try colour blending as a technique of shading, with opacity
pretty low so the colour goes well. For these type of pastel colours, try using:

Blues, purples, light greens, browns, very pale greys.

The overall statement:

I love the idea of this picture, it's just with some improving in some places, it could be
even better!
