I submitted this for a CGTalk daily sketch, but I wanted to submit it here too, since you don’t get much c&c on the DS threads.

I am somewhat happy with it, but I don’t really like how it turned out kind of cartoonish, and well… ‘bleh’.

I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions to make it a little more impactful.

the pic doesnt show.

oh… thanks!

does it work now?

No. Try

I see it fine.

The one thing that really grabs my attention is the big brown blob right behind her. I find it somewhat distracting.

yeah i agree with extol.

i like the way you painted the trees.

I think that also the grass should be less colourful. Also the lower part of the legs, specially the one outside the skirt, should be in shadow. At least from the knee to the floor.
Nice drawing
