    xLouisax: I like the small wrinkles of the dress on her arm and waist. I think you can do some deeper shadows and more highlights to give your picture more contrast

    B u r l: really cool idea. I ask myself sometimes if Antoinette wasn't fat because she had eaten to much sweets, this seems to be the answer! I love the exaggerations you used

    CrookedHorn: funny idea, even if it's going to be very uncomfortable for Marie. I'm looking forward to see the next step

    jenny7332 : nice combination with the swan! Maybe you can show more clear where the light comes from, I'm not sure at moment

    Nephilie: I like the texture you are bringing in (fox & feathers). I tend to look at the window first since it is on a straight view. Perhaps tilting the wall/window could also help to bring the focus to the character. (Also, making it less bright will help too).

    JanJager: Looking great! Love the pink coming through.

    C.Abarac: Great stroke developing there.

    CrookenHorn: I look forward to seeing the colors you bring in. Awesome idea.

    Xaya: I like the tense emotion coming from yours.

    Damn... i wanna finish this thing!!!

    Changed a lot, new face and expression, didn´t liked the last one.
    Catched some reference to get a better skintone... paler!

    The "thinking expression" shows more story. I darkened the left side to gain more drama and to make the blossom relief at the wall some kind of dangerous looking.

    Ok 1 or 2 hours more work then i give up...

    Still going...
    One of these days I'll remember to work early enough not to be right up against deadline.
    But depth is happening. Working from most boring to least boring, so the skin and hair are next. Will go back and fix the sofa if time allows.

    It looks like I also need to jigger my color settings. These jpgs are coming out significantly more washed-out than the main document.

    A couple of paintovers for the peeps and a little update on my stuff.

    @AlotAbitAlittle: You seem to have too many 'vanishing points chosen' as I've shown each object you've drawn has it's own perspective. Choose one and stick to it. Hope this has helped.

    uhh i somehow totally changed my colours and fudged this whole thing up.
    thanks for the critique thus far guys...it's helped a lot.

    but WOww i feel like i haven't done a serious piece in forever and i'm so frustrated.

    all this is making me realize is that i have an enormous amount to study ):
    i hate something about this so much! Or maybe i'm staring at it too long? maybe i'm tired from working two jobs

    BLEH

    and ...finished i guess ): next time i'll use ref for the pose...she does look stiff ):

    Thanks JanJager and Brashen, think i'll just stick with my idea and see how it goes, not really got enough time to redevelop it even if i wanted to, so hopefully it'll work itself out

    Omg, i've found using colour over greyscale SO hard! And I can't work on this anymore as I've run out of time and have to go to work! But chow is a learning experience right, so at least I've learnt a bit about this method ^_^'

    I'm planning on repainting this so I can retrace my steps and hopefully make a better final piece.

    Thanks everyone for all the advice! xx
