So (yet again) I tried different techniques with this one. A friend suggested that I focus more on contrast in my work.
I blindly picked four colors and then kinda adjusted and changed them as needed to make this. It was a fun challenge. c:
Tell me what you guys think! :D

Not bad! You're getting better! :la:

I'd suggest adding a bit darker colors. Also don't be afraid to use grayscale as an option to see where you need to add more contrast. Other than that though, you're getting the color thing down pretty well. That's pretty much how I choose colors; blindly. XD

Even darker!? D:
asdfghjkl
I'm scared, though. I don't know how to go darker. I'm working on a piece right now and I want it to be really sunny and bright, would you still suggest I use darker colors?

Just gotta experiment buddy! That's all I can tell ya!

Maybe not darker perse, but I think more highlights will do? Yeah that's it! I can still see that you know how to shade though. You just have to add a little more lights and darks; don't go too dark or too bright, unless you're trying to make a picture with high contrast. :nod:

I really like the varying colors in the skin. It really shows nice contrast and depth. Also, that fuzzy hair is awesome!

There are some elements of it that I love absolutely. I think the only critique i have for my personal tastes is that I wish the background were not so close in tone to skin. Otherwise, lovely as always~

Well thank you~
And yeah, I noticed that same thing not long after posting it.
Like I said in my description, I blindly picked these colors and didn't want to totally abandon my scheme with the background. Maybe I should have picked a fifth color and somehow locked it in with the rest of the picture. I dunno-
But I'll definitely keep that in mind next time. c:

Haha, well thank you!
LadyKuki was the one who suggested I try to add more contrast, so I was asking for her opinion in particular. But your compliment is equally appreciated! :D
Thanks!
