Originally, I planned to draw soft shadows but ended up rushing the last steps because I'm obsessed with making keychains nowadays. ='D

The background came out absolutely gorgeous. Love the window design the most.

You did a nice job combining several textures without making them too eye catching and distracting from the goal of the image.

I think the only things I can recommend is the character shading could be pushed a bit more (lighter lights/darker darks) but it really doesn't damage the picture, however the way the hand is shaded holding the bood I think her thumb appears to be too far back and almost makes her hand look backwards.

Thank you very much!
Yep, unfortunately the character was the one thing that I really rushed. The initial plan was making something like 5 different shadow layers... X'D

Oh, that's why the hand looks so strannge. o_o
Maybe I'll change that when the contest's over, would be unfair if I did now I suppose.

Yes I remember reading you were rushed, but I don't even think the 3 shades/cell shading looks bad at all. Infact you could probably play with the levels on your skin to push it more (Image > Adjustments > Levels or making a levels adjustments layer if you don't want to make permanent changes)

Yeah you may want to wait to change anything till after the contest, good luck on that by the way!

Maybe but I'm worried that it would look strange on the parts where the shadows would have gotten extra layers. So I'd need a gray mask on the lighter parts to balance it out again... XD

Thank you~ ;3
