Looks good so far. The face and the expression seem spot on and the lighting is lovely. I think the foreground shoulder at the bottom left could do with a bit of enlargement. At the moment the body appears a little too narrow.

Looks good, that's a very pretty friend you have :) I'd suggest working some on the eyebrows though, because she does look a tad worried now. And I think her nose is a bit bigger than you made it. Softer edges, like you plan, seems a good choice for her :)

Any an all misspellings are henceforth blamed on the cat.

Valence: Thank you! I'll look into the shoulder, I haven't caught that so I'll definitely take another look!

Charlotte: Why thank you:D Great input, I haven't done much work on the eyebrows so I'll definitely focus in on that aspect!

.................

I worked on the image a great deal, pushed values and lighting further and introduced shading with soft edged brushes, which is giving me the look I had in mind so I'm quite pleased with how it's turning out so far!

I worked on the image significantly, did some changes to the lighting and refined the skin heavily to soften the values a bit and give it a less of a plastic look:

I did some changes to the image and finalized it. I'm quite pleased with it and ready to move on to the next illustration. Here is the final illustration:



Next up I started an illustration for a friend, with the theme 'Lady Justice'. I spent many hours on the sketch to make it as refined as possible. I had a reference for the general pose, which can be seen here .

The pose suits the theme quite well, the pros being its very iconic. On the downside, its a bit stiff. Here is the final sketch:



Any feedback is always appreciated as always!

Brave of you to do all those hands!
I'd be finding ways to cover them up somehow. :lol:

I think the hand holding the scales looks a little awkward at the moment, but then again, I'm famously not a hand expert. :)

Terrific composition though! :thumbup:

Valence: Why thank you :D Hands were important here as I wanted a certain darkness present into the image. I looked at the reference for the hand and it seems fairly accurate, might just look weird regardless though, I'll see how it turns out! Thanks for the positive words!

......I updated the sketch a bit and blocked in the basic colors. Pretty happy with my color choices so far, but feel free to let me know any input!
