    Red face Singing Viking Opera Girlie!

    working on a character. Let's call her a sword-wielding Viking opera singer girl (?). Going for a cuter style, something like this and this lovely illustrator whom I adore

    started with the sketch and now currently working on photoshop color. Comments and Critiques on anything would be very much appreciated!!

    revision!

    restarted with some of the same colors. tried adding some effects in Photoshop. I want it to be light and flowing, nothing too heavy. Recognizable shapes of color that make it easy to read. I am heavily inspired by the artist I linked in the previous post.
    Is it not readable? Is it confusing or off-putting in any way? As before, comments and critiques would be appreciated!

    Her eyes are really bugging me. It's like one is dropped down.

    The pic itself is totally not my style so I can't really comment much. But I noticed the purple for the background is really bright and kind of dims the character. Dimming / desaturating the background a little might help the character come out forward a little more and add the illusion of more warmth and depth as well.

    Hey you! Yes, you! Crit me!
