    Looks cool! I like the color use. I think I see some things that can be improved, too. Her pose looks a little weak, as if out of balance (you could try a broader stance and the head tilted back...

    Proportions! At the moment her shoulders are about 1,5 head heights wide, so you gotta scale down the head or the rest up. There's something about the torso too, but I can't quite catch it. It might...

    The scale of the people in the second one looks a bit off to me, as if they are too small to have been living in the buildings. A regular floor in a building takes up 3m I think, you can use that to...
