Ooh, that background is gorgeous... :heart: 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. :hug: And otherwise, great work! I hope your friend likes this!

I'm always scared of going lineless unless I'm doing realism. The whole figure just loses definition. But perhaps I will figure out a good technique for that next time. Thank you for the advice, Miyu!

No problem, and I hope it works out well for you. :hug: 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...

I CAN SEE HER BUTT.
and yeah, it is kinda flat.
also, the parts of her bodeh which are touching the ground look kind of odd. like they're not quite supporting her.

it still rocks, though.

Wow, the background is amazing. The foliage is done really, really well.

The only critic that I have is that her butt looks a tad flat/the clothing folds over it a little funny. l'D

Yeah, that I noticed. Thanks for pointing it out, I'll make sure not to that again. Thanks!

Oh wowwow WOW <3 The background is truly beautiful :heart: 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 :(
