Worked on it some more. :) Added a bit of texture to the background. Any critique is welcomed.

Drawn using Mypaint.

I really like this WIP so far!
One thing to note is that it's a bit on the eyes.
When/if you finish this, I would suggest taking it further and making a sky (maybe one that's just started to set so it's a soft blue and pinky deliciousness).
It would be nice to clean up the lines a bit (if you feel up for it).
Another thing I suggest is doing something with the hair; it looks really flat and a bit strange right now.
Over all, I think this is a fantastic sketch-- the anatomy looks spot on as far as I can see and I really like the shading you've done.

Thanks for taking the time to write this :). You made some really good points. I agree that it needs more of a background and some more work in some areas. Especially the hair.The hair looks like a hot mess right now XD. Thanks again.

I really like this drawing. I also like the fact that you're using MyPaint. I started using it a few months ago, and I enjoy my pieces because of it.

In terms of the drawing, I think you should etch the hair out more. I know it isn't a scratch work, but these are the only terms I can use to relate to it. xD I also think that the black around her could be formed into clouds and whatnot too. It just feels unfinished to me. The yellow background could be more prominent too without having to add as much detail as the foreground.

Overall, a really nice drawing.

I will admit, this really isn't a finished piece. It started out as me just experimenting with the dodge and burn features and it kind of grew into this XD. One of those random inspirations I suppose. I am kind of stuck as to how I want to proceed, so I figured- Why not upload it as it is so far and see if I get any feedback? Thanks for taking the time to give me some of the feedback I was hoping for :).
I have actually done a little bit of scratch work before in high school and I really enjoyed it. I used some of the same type of thinking when I made this so I can understand why it would remind you of it.
After reading your comment, I have to say I agree with everything you've said. It's all very sound advice. I'll definitely keep your points in mind the next time I sit down and work on it. To be honest, I think I unconsciously avoided her feet because I was struggling with getting them right. Maybe I should practice drawing some feet before I go back to working on this. I also agree that the background needs a little more work. Thanks again :).

i just love love love the details of this. At first i thought it was scratchwork because it was so detailed! Lovely! Keep up the great work!

I have actually done a little bit of scratchwork before, so I guess I used some of the same techniques. Scratch-board is a lot of fun.

i think i've tried it, and didn't have patience lol.
