    I'm a little confused about the age of this character. The head and arms say adult, but the proportions say child. Also each part of the body seems stylized in different ways. The legs especially seem really thick. Her head also appears off center. Did you do an undersketch and guidelines for the body? I recommend trying to figure out structure in the earliest stage then going in with color. You can do thumbnails on a seperate piece of paper to plan so you don't have marks on your finished piece.

    Have you considered using water color pencils--it does help with getting a background wash and making it very even. I like this, very cute, but it looks more like umbrella day than raining day without depicting the actual rain?

    Looks like the umbrella has impaled her head. And yeah, as said previously there is a bit of mismatch of styles. She has a bratz doll's head, ultra thick legs and south park hands.
