Finally finished this, not for anything specific just for practise. Started it I think November last year then forgot about it! Just got round to finishing it this morning. I'm self-taught illustration wise (studied Graphic Design, not illustration) so any feedback welcome.




Nice Work!
I think the colours work well. I would just say that the skull could do with some sharper edges. It may even work better with skull inverted to how you have drawn it. So all in white, with the lines and shading revealing the background. You could even do this by just using the eraser tool as a sharp pencil. It looks like it could also be a nice logo, perhaps with some typography included?

That looks really good. Never heard of Krita, might take a look.

If I was being hyper-critical, she looks very slightly boss-eyed. I would also look at the top lip, a bit lop-sided?
Maybe some stronger highlights in the hair? Pupils need to be a tiny bit blacker maybe.
I made some adjustments based on your feedback. The eyes definitley look better now slightly adjusted and with darker pupils. I adjusted the lips too, and added some more highlights to the hair.

Thanks, I started off with just a single line drawing but roughed it up with some more lines. I did in Illustrator so its all vectors so I might just try removing some lines to see how it looks.
