    Waay too big.

    All I can see for certain is that her features don't fit in her face, they seem a touch arbitrarily placed and floating above the head, rather than part of it.

    Before I say anything else, please resize this and reupload; I had to take it into another program to view the whole thing at once, and I really shouldn't have to do that.

    That said, the best thing about this picture is the torso. I like it; simplisticly stylized, but still correct.
    From there though, there are a few things that could stand correcting. The clothing folds, for a start. Look at references for what you're painting, because fabric just doesn't fall like that.
    Ditch the texture on the leather strap of the quiver, paint it in instead. The texture looks out of place with the hand painted rest of the image.
    Find a few tutorials on how hair is painted; very few people paint with individual strands. Instead, we block the hair in as a whole, then section it up with highlights and shadows, and then add individual hairs sparingly to hint at the fact that it's there.
    Last of all, the face. The features are somewhat out of place with the rest of the image. The nose is waaaay too small, and too far to the right. The features are kind of flat, considering the rest of the picture is painted in. Take a look at http://www.furiae.com/index.php?view=gallery her tutorials if that's what you're going for. Martha Dahlig is also a good one to look up for painting features. As far as i know there are a lot of her tutorials posted on the imaginefx website under 'workshops'. I'm not sure if she has them listed anywhere else, but it's a good thing to look at.

    Overall, you're making a very strong start, and a few small things could go a long way in improving your art! You seem to be at a point half way between painting and comicking right now, and figuring out what direction you want your images to go in might really help. No one says you have to pick one or the other overall, but seperating the styles depending on the picture might be wise.

    Before any decent critique can be made you need to significantly reduce the size of these uploads.

    Right using a HB pencil for shading is pretty redundant, it gives very little form to things, if you're going to shade with a pencils get a good range of Graphite pencils. This'll make shading, and putting greater contrast in the shade easier.

    As for the Digitally editted version, the filters of light beaming onto her just look awkward. It's obvious you've used a preset effect in the computer program you've used. And the lowerpart just looks odd for that dark green tint. Also try using a greater variety of colour, especially with the skin, rather than just altering the tone of a colour. To tackle this find reference photos and examine the colours you can see on the skin, and try either making colour studies with paints or coloured pencils.

    If you keep a positive, self-analytical, and productive outlook on your work, you'll swiftly improve.
