Ooh, that background is gorgeous... We call that "atmospheric perspective"! *shot by art students*
Ne, I like this piece a lot!! You've already gotten some good critiques, so I'll just add my tip - if you're using acrylic to paint, you don't need the black outline. ^_^ Black will immediately flatten an image - better to define edges with contrasting colour. You might need a little for her eyes, but use it as sparingly as possible. And otherwise, great work! I hope your friend likes this!
No problem, and I hope it works out well for you. I know, I have trouble doing it myself, but it depends on the medium. Paints and pastels work well without blacks at all, while things like pencils and markers are probably better off with an outline. ^^ It's scary to not have lines... ;-; I like to box everything in...
Oh wowwow WOW <3 The background is truly beautiful So soft but realistic looking 8D How'd you do that?? *0* Really love her expression and pose as well, love her arm and the way you shaded it :3 But the anatomy seems a bit off here and there, like with her chest, I'm not sure how to explain but I think her boobs should be more forward? It seems as if you couldn't decide wether you wanted a side view or a front view of her torso o: I dunno, I'm not much good at giving critique
