She is very cute, she just needs a firmer hand with the shading. This picture doesn't really have a set light source--it's coming from every which way. Pick a direction and draw a little arrow on your sketchpad or something. Again, shadows on neck, boobs, and knees to make the forms appear three-dimensional. This time the inner side of her wings would also be dark. The colors you chose are good--red-orange and green have nice...vibe. There's a technical artsy term for it I can't remember at the moment. Um. Some art student I am. :x

Eh....I can't really take credit for the color choices. It's someone else's character, so I used her colors. I don't really now if I make good color choices. I've heard of the whole color wheel thing, but never really focused on it - trying to get a grasp of how to color things first, I guess. Thank you once again for the helpful tips.

Thanks...she was fun to draw. I always meant to draw more Gargoyles, I even had one of my own characters. I need to draw her again.
