Hello there! I am from ProjectComment.

This is an absolutely amazing piece of art! I love the way you have designed her. Nod  the pom poms and the hair both look absolutely great! the horns look realistic and so does the clothes. But, there are a few problems in this picture she looks like she's flying so I will suggest if next time you could add a ground so she wouldn't be looking like she is flying. :| (Blank Stare)  some of the fingers on her hands are sharp they could be a bit rounder. making the eyes more vibrant would be really pretty. the center of the ribcage should be in the same place as the center of the chest. I also really love the color selection!  I really like The pose, shading, expression and attention to details such as the pom-pom, shoes, hair etc are very well done indeed. but, other than that you have done a amazing job on this lovely piece of art!

Keep up the amazing work! Clap

Hello, another commenter from :iconprojectcomment: coming your way! I hope this will be helpful to you!

Overall, from a design standpoint, this is really really cute! I like the way the blue uniform and the orange-ish skin contrasts with each other. It really makes the character look vibrant and exciting. I really don't have any complaints about the look, although if I could make a suggestion, it would be that maybe making the eyes more vibrant would be really pretty. As for the work as a drawing, the rendering is very nice, especially on the face and hair. The pom-pom also is really nice. I know it's made with a texture brush but... god damn it, pom-poms are really, really hard! 

As for problems in the drawing, well, there's a couple major ones. The biggest, most notable one is that the ribcage and the chest are going in two different directions. the center of the ribcage should be in the same place as the center of the chest. The way they disconnect just looks very... off. The other one is the hand. The two middle fingers are somewhat fused. This itself isn't a problem, but it does mean that the fingers should probably be better shaded to make it clear that they're in fact two different fingers. 

To sum it up, the rendering itself is fine, and the design is very cute! However, there are a few small anatomy issues that should be kept in mind for future references. There are a lot of very solid tutorials on torsos on Deviantart, so hopefully you should be able to find something that'll help you. Although I generally find with anatomy that once you know these rules of thumb, you rarely make the same mistake again, unless it's a small one. >>; I still can never get leg-to-body ratios right, and in some ways have kinda given up and said "Yeah, their legs are gonna be kinda long. As long as they don't look like Bayonetta on steroids." 

Keep up the good work! I wish you the best of luck in the character design challenge!

Hi, I'm from ProjectComment.

Well, first let's say that general impression is: very good, feels like a professional concept art.
What I like about the picture:
 - Coloring technique is solid. Light and shadows have their color, the picture has bright accents, that are balanced by soft and less detailed areas. The whole figure looks volumous. Leg, shaded with a gradient, looks fantastic!
 - Distinct colors and small accents/details. You use variations of general colors for shadows and highlights, but at the same time the color scheme is clear and easy to use in simplified version too, if needed. Same is true for details (ribbons, clothing details, horns): there are not too much of them, they are simple to reproduce, but they make the image look complete. If the character is used, it will be easy to make her recognizable.
 - Composition. Having a full-body and a bust is a good approach, you have also placed them thoughtfully, making a simgle flow of objects, comfortable for one's eyes to follow.
 - General proportions, they look stylized, but solid, apart from some aspects (see below). It's interesting and looks dynamic and fresh. Such figure would look good in a movie or a game. It's great that you add anatomy details too, showing the muscle and such.

Areas where improvement is possible:
 - Anatomy. I see a few issues now... First, the right hand looks cropped, once you think of how it would look after removing the fluffy cheerleader thing (how are those called? =) ). The waist looks strange, it's kinda flat and overly thin (even for a stylized version). The legs connect strangely too, this whole area looks unclear, when you think of a 3D version of it... Her cranium is a bit stretched up, the hair looks like it's raising a little above her head (maybe if the head was wider, its height and hair placement would look normal, without lowering it... not sure). Mouth is a bit shifted to the left side of the picture - the face symmetry is just slightly off, but still.
 - The horns look kinda rough and unclear, but since this is a WIP they might just be unfinished, I think... Anyway, now that's contrasting with other parts, which are sketchy, but look finished for the current stage.
 - The logo sticks out clashing with other things here... Too obvious that it should have been horizontal instead of bending upward :D (Big Grin)
 - I'm not sure I like the combination of reddish-brown skin and light-blue dress, but this is just about likes/dislikes. Like I said, once colors were chosen you did a great job in adding hues and tone variations and coloring the whole thing. Also, I'm not sure about light yellow-green eyes, but you connected them to other colors through tinted highlights, so I can't say they don't fit (again, that's about personal tastes when it comes to design, because technically you did everything great).

Overall it's a great concept piece, because it gives a good view of the character design, shows things that will be needed for further use of the character, without looking overloaded by extra details. Good job!

What a lovely WIP. :D (Big Grin)  
I really love the design on her it looks really good. Also, I love her cute eye design. You've done a great job on this! I will surely love to see more of your WIP(s) !  I also, really love the color selection! It really goes well with the art. Also, the pom pom has a really nice design to it. Also, an really good choice of color. Also, I really like The pose, shading, expression and attention to details such as the pom-pom, shoes, hair etc are very well done indeed. But, their could be an little touch up to it like adding an back ground to it. So, it wouldn't make it look like she is flying. But, other than that you've done an delightful job! Great WIP.  Also, I hope you have an very nice day! 

Keep up the delightful work. I really adore your work!

It's a wonderfully drawn piece, It have a nice colour selection too :D

(I don't mean to be rude, i have a hard time translating what i want to say)
Yet, the pose it's not natural.
Her posture say she's on the air, her ribbon say she's falling but she's not ready to land at all.
And the hairy thig (i don't know the transation), her colotes and hair, are like of she's not moveing at all.

Again sorry if i sound rude >~< it's not my intention

I think the only thing that needs adjusting is that extended shin there... even with the horizontal stripes its extremely long in proportion to her thigh. leave the thigh and leg where it is, otherwise this is just about perfect. nice job on the shading and the hands.

Good observation! I typically elongate the legs a touch, it’s a personal style thing, but I think you are right I went a little overboard on this. Thanks again!

Only at the ankle really. Believe me I love drawing legs for days too! but with the shoe style and angle at that particular bit, the shin just is a smidge too distorted for the perspective you're looking for. ^_^
