Yeah, I know it's sloppy. Oh well, I drew this traditionally then scanned it to color, that's the main reason. This is also my first finished drawing that actually has a background, which is cool. Anyways, I hope you all like it!

Alright. Judging by this piece, I'd guess you're fairly new to drawing, or at least new to digital art. I'll give you a few pointers that might help you out a little bit.

First of all, it's good to have your art appeal to the eyes. Solid, bright colors aren't going to look right on a landscape. It's good to put diversity in the color you use, try blending in a few shades in so it's not a bunch of dull colors. If you take a look outside you will see that there is no thick black line on the horizon line, or around buildings or mountains. it looks much nicer to keep your outline small.

If you look at a mountain, you'll see that it, suprisingly, isn't just a cone with a cone of snow on top. Your drawing will look much nicer if you put more effort into the environment, besides just a few pointy mountains on flat grass.

Sorry about how sloppy this review is, I hope you will forgive me. I'm just trying to give you a few pointers. If this doesn't help, try tracing a couple of landscapes. Eventually you'll get the hang of the shapes.

Alright. First of all, I'd like to say that you have the shading and details pretty much down. I like the way you did the shirt, all the colors, lighting, and shading is really nice. The thing that made me want to write a critique on this piece is the way some of her body is positioned and shaped. Her arms, torso, and bottom look oddly positioned. The way her back curves doesn't look natural, and it distracts me from the rest of the nice drawing. Another thing, though it's a bit minor, is that it appears as if she has a piece missing from her right leg. It's important to pay attention to things like that while your drawing, minor flaws like that could leave a bit of an impact, making people who see the drawing think, "Hey, something seems a bit off". Overall, I think the drawing is nice. You're really talented in drawing, it's just you should pay attention to how the human body is shaped a little bit more, it'll help in the long run.

I hope my review helped you, you have great potential. Take care.

I enjoy helping others, mostly when it comes to art. I do not consider myself to be a professional in any way, but I simply love giving pointers that might help new/aspiring artists.
