    Looking for critiques

    This is a character I've come up with for a fairie tale I'm writing. I'm looking for design, anatomical and coloring critiques, but all comments are welcome

    It's a good start so far, but I think you could do more with your coloring. Right now if feels airbrushed and doesn't really represent the form very well. Try varying the colors that you are using in the skin tone and deepening some of your shadows. Consider using hard edged brushes in some places. Also, I would try to get a reference for the shoulder/upper arm area. It's a really tricky pose so I think it'd help you.

    The easiest way to know how light falls across a form is from reference. Get a friend to pose in a photo with a similar lightsource, or look at yourself in a mirror. Making one side white isn't really coming across as light hitting the figure. Also, the linework could use a bit of work also, all the lines are a uniform thickness and undescriptive of the shapes they're defining. Life drawing would probably help you out both in your anatomy, and your lighting.

    I use openCanvas to do my lines with, but I'm not sure how to get varying sizes using the brushes or where the thicker lines will look the best.
