Hello. I seem to have finished this, but something still bothers me about it. Help?
Definitely not dark enough on the character. The shadows should be quite dark on her body, and the grass at her feet should have deeper values the closer it comes to the camera. And her drop shadow would be darker. You have the direction of light figured out, just think about where the light won't hit.
zelda_geek, thanks for recommeding my site, and for the beautiful illustration of the principles of light and colour in that gif (not to mention in your sketchbook and portfolio!).
J.R. Hollis said it well but I can reinforce by just pointing out that you want more contrast. Make the interaction of the light less flat. You are aiming to compose a style of lighting which usualy demands darker darks and sharp contrasts.
