Okay, I hate this one.
I wasn't even going to post it, I dislike it that much.
But I thought about it and maybe someone could give me a little help and point out some of the areas I went wrong.
So critique away please!

This took about 2-3 hours with stock search.
I was listening to Green Day's 21t Century Breakdown album
I was eating Almond Honey Bunches Of Oats out of the box
Used my bamboo tablet, trackpad mouse, and Photoshop Elements 8

DO NOT STEAL OR I WILL FIND YOU!!!!!!!

Thanks to the wonderful stock providers:

Tail: fav.me/d58tmb5
BG: fav.me/d1dmg76
Girl: fav.me/d5slen7

Lovely fantasy art. It reminds me of Ariel Little Mermaid Cake because of the position.

I really dislike that part too. Overall I am unimpressed with how this turned out. Though I am sure it would have been a lot nicer if I had noticed that the arm bend is in the stock photo. It becomes a lot more noticeably when I lightened the image. I didn't notice how awkward it looked until I had cut and placed it, and then I was to far along to change it and just wanted it finish. I repainted some shadows trying to fix it, but in the end just gave up and posted.

her right arm is bugging me badly.  The way the shadows are falling, and the position of the hand/wrist area.... it appears to be going in the exact wrong direction.
