    Red face Critique for a beginner

    Hello all! This is my first post here on, so let me introduce myself. I'm an aspiring artist who's been drawing with pencil and paper since before birth, and several years ago decided to make it a career. I'm still only 18, but am already getting started in that area. Anyway, I want to draw and paint using photoshop more, and so I'd figure this is the best way to learn how to better my skills. :] So here's a piece I just finished recently. Her name is Jeiyla and I kinda just took it easy on detail overall, since I'm just trying to get the fundamentals down. Any constructive critique would be much appreciated! :]

    I like it. One thing: bracer and bandages look a bit like "body paintings". Should be more silhouetted against the arm or leg, like you did with the bra band.

    solid character, but i'd say the armor plates aren't symmetrically positioned, and the highlights (esp. on her left leg) imply a curvature that doesn't match her body (it looks cupped in a way that would create pressure along the edges of the plate
