it's 5 am and to help deal with my insomnia I drew up a picture of zazie the beast from trigun, how's she lookin'? anything I did right? anything that needs improvements?
What's with that line above her head?
Looking for a job!

The hair in the left side of the drawing near the neck should be darker because of shadows.
Lines too thick, unless you are deciding to put in shadows that are high in contrast, and I recommend you to do so.
Light seem to be coming from the right of the pic by the look of the shadow on her face and body, but the hair doesn't show that effect
Her outfit does not have any shadows at all. Even a black outfit have some dark grey shadow
The tree in the background does not fit the whole drawing because of the absence of lines, in contrast of the lady.
Don't just use the dodge tool for her eyes. Get her some dark red eyes instead, or make it the color of the hair
Flop it and you'll see it in a whole new light.
Also, clean up your scans better before you move to color.

thr0atcutter: line above her head? I'm not sure what you mean^^;
deep_in_food: thank you for all the tips! how do you mean putting the shadows in high contrast?
oh! and that's no tree in the bg, it's a giant sand worm thing, dunno if that changes anything heh^^;
Elwell: how do you mean flop it?
He means flip the image horizontally. It lets you look at your image from a different perspective and tends to make errors very apparent.
In PS it would be Image > Rotate Canvas > Flip canvas horizontal
A traditional painter might use a mirror to do the same thing.
He means you should flip the canvas horizontaly.
"image>rotate canvas>flip canvas horzontal" if you are using photoshop.
Edit: Flake was faster
