Ok, so this is a character I made, and I'm very unhappy with it. I know there's plenty going wrong and I really want to get better. So maybe I can get some pointers on what the most blatant mistakes are. I'm teaching myself this stuff, and would very much appreciate any and all help I can get. I used a couple of references for the arms, the pose and stuff like that. Unfortunately I didn't have any references for the lighting, which I think is probably the biggest offender. But yeah.
I also know that clothing is plain, I'll try to think of some better clothes. Those were not the main point of this, this is more about lighting.
