Well, this is the most time I think I have spent on a picture, but great to be back! This is my character, that is sort of future-soldier related. I haven't yet decided what to call her, or anything really about her, except that she is a brave, feisty, tomboyish young woman. I drew her in my art pad a year or so ago now, when I was 11 or 12, and always wanted to draw her on the computer. First lineless drawing I've done! Hope you guys like it -
C & C really appreciated ;)

All the time you spent on this shows; it's really good.
The shading is really awesome. :)
As for things that you could maybe ameliorate next time;
I'd like to mention that her left hand is too small...
Also, her right leg placement make it seem like one leg is longer than the other, so that is a little awkward once you take a good look at it - but maybe it's just me. I'd also recommend using references for the guns/holding guns if you didn't do so already (guns are really hard to do).

it's great to see you again :^D i was wondering where you'd gone.
as for the picture, i think it looks amazing, and as Tayu said you can really tell that you've put a heap of effort into it. the shading on the armour is incredible and i really can't stop staring at it.. i think her hair could've been a bit more diluted in this particular piece though; it's a bit too striking compared to the muted colours of the rest of the pic~

@ Taxuyaun (I hope I spelt it right) : thanks, for the help! I knew the hand was too small and told myself I would change it next time I edited my work, but of course, I completely forgot. And I see what you mean about the leg.
@ miles: Thank you so much, I love being able to relax and draw on NDA. I see what you mean about the hair, I did change the opacity before I saved it, to make it slightly duller, and added another layer (which muddles up the opacities). Again, I forgot. I think I need to go to bed slightly earlier...
Thank you both for the great comments, and they will definately help me in the future, I really do, genuinely appreciate it.

I agree with Tayu. Also, the pose looks a bit unbalanced, like she's going to fall over. It's probably because her upper body is leaning too much, but I'm not sure. Otherwise, I like this piece and it has a very nice color scheme.

Thanks, I am going through a phase where I really like wine red at the moment (?). This might be me, but I don't think that she looks like she is going to fall over because she has her leg stepping back to support her. But you are probably right. Thank you for the advice though and thank you for the comment. :)
