One thing you could try for the legs dilemma is cropping the missing area, then adding a rimmed border to your picture.
If there's a border it may feel more finalized and enclosed, so the viewer spends less time wondering about the legs.
:D And it doesn't have to be complicated. A simple black edge would be easy and fine.

You are steadily improving so much Midorii, when I realized this was once of your pieces I was ecstatic to see how far you've come!
Liriel's outfit (color scheme and design) is really pritty, and Drizzt is simply the coolest.
I love some of the gesture work going on here, and great job on brushing up on some anatomy before attempting this piece.
Their white hair really looks nice, as does the lash work above their eyes.

Only real critique I have is the photo-dropped grass; it really distracts from the flow of the piece.
That said, grass is an @$$ to draw so I completely understand why you went that route.
Perhaps if you were to saturate or de-saturate the grass more to match the colors of your characters, it would look more unified.

:D Don't feel pressured to take any of my suggestions however, as it stands this is still a very nice piece of your work :heart:

Now, that really looks better. :) You did well with shading.

But, their legs are cut off :O_o:

There's only so much I can do when the linart ends.

Ah, but you can always crop the picture, or paint fragment down their legs black.

I tried that...it ended up looking more awkward.

Yeah, it sometimes has that effect...
Hmm, so maybe cutting the edges? Anyway, it's all just ideas. ^^;

Thank you. I appreciate it. <3 It's only about the fourth or fifth picture I've colored digitally.
