Winter Chill by FelineCasanova Winter Chill by FelineCasanova
So, generic title aside, I have been working on this picture for quite a few days recently! I had an epiphany that totally made my profile face drawing much better! I think this turned out better than expected! I have also been experimenting with lighting and anatomy! Critiques VERY MUCH requested!

By the by, that is my pokemon trainer, (Jessica, I think I named her) and her main pokemon, Goodra.

(If I asked you to redline: Just the person please! Thanks a ton!)

Very cute shading style! Nicely toned down color palette. And I love the goo coming off of Goodra, a very slimy yet charming touch!

The arms of the girl are too short and too slender, however. I recommend using a layer on top of your drawing layer to draw out lines to mark the length of the arms and compare them to the distance between the shoulder and the mid thigh (fingertips will typically reach to mid-thigh). The hands should also be about the same length as her face, so they could be larger.
Her face should definitely extend out farther. The face typically makes a semi-circle-ish shape, with the nose sticking out the farthest, the upper lip the second farthest. I see you're getting that idea, but the face looks really concave, like it's arcing inward. Make sure it arcs outward next time. And the back of the skull should definitely stick out farther, and the head should not be as tall as it is.
The legs are very nice; a little long, but still, nicely rendered.

Neat sweater design, though; I like how the oozy-ness matches Goodra's oozy-ness. Very cute!
What do you think?

No problem, I am also trying to improve myself - so I have sympathy for others who feel the same way :)

<3 <3 I also really want to get into an art summer school program; my family doesn't have the money to pay for it, so I'm trying to get into one of the free spots available, and to do that you need a portfolio.

Right. Well, I recommend putting together a small portfolio giving examples of many different things that you have done - some good things to include would be still life pencil drawings, some oil pastel if you have any lying around, and you could also include that drawing that I commented on, I feel that the unicorn one would be fit for that sort of thing, or the most recent one that you posted with Goodra. Remember, you don't want to include more than one drawing containing fan art, because fellow artists will come to respect and recognize you more seeing what your own creative capabilities are. :) Remember, it's not always about technique - creativity goes a long way. :)

Thanks for the advice! That all makes sense, I think I do have an oil pastel painting I've done. Thanks in general for being so helpful <3 <3 (Watched ^^)
