Last night I started messing about in a paintchat. Somehow I got the bright idea - "Lets try lighting from below! But.. let's not use a reference! And lets not use a tablet!" Later I copied this picture over from the paintchat and put it into Photoshop. I worked on it a bit longer, screwing with everything possible (See the ear? She was an elf. Eek.)
I think it came out decent. Could use a bit more polishing, as always, but I saw to many problems with it to want to finish finish it. What problems do YOU see? I'm looking for any critique at all! But a comment on the features and most especially the sad attempt at lighting would be much appreciated.
Note: I'm 18, never had any training. So don't be to terribly mean, please. o.o
