Well, about some criticism...her pose is ok, good proportion and cute face. Maybe her right leg is a little bigger (or wider), even considering is situated closer than the left one.
About the colours you did a awesome work, as always, with warm colours, blurring some parts of the body and giving these incredible light effects. (PS: I love the freckles). But, as I can see, this is also a little bug, cause you put these white circles is some lightened areas and, in some cases, in darkened parts (like her left tit, her left shoulder or the collarbone). I mean, not every part of her anatomy must have a light point, for example you did it perfect in her arms and hip.
thanks for the comments but i cant take credit for the anatomy or pose of the image I was just in charge of the colors on this one. Line art come from my bros gallery. But i do see what you mean about the leg being thin, I actually tried to correct it by painting the leg but with all the shading the dark brown turned into a black so it kinda makes it look like a gap between the legs, if you check out the older line work you can see how it was proportion-it in the original .
I totally agree with you, when i add the highlight spots to my images it's usually my second to last step to completion and im just trying to quickly slap those in there, so i go into "auto pilot" mode and drop them in "safe spots", places i've put them in prior images and felt comfortable. I do appreciate the "g CHECK" though, i should slow down and take more time on the high lights. thanks for taking a deep look at this image, its always good to get some good feedback. helps a ton on future projects.
oh and feel free to leave long comments, does not bother me
I read you brother did the lineart a few years ago, so it's almost impossible to change it (and it's not your part of the work, of course). It's understandable that after so many hours of hard work with colours and shadows, the artist usually wants to finish the work leaving some little details unfixed. I'm one of those, of course, and considering lights as one of the most shocking parts of the drawing, it needs its own time to get the best results. Anyway, your lighting style is awesome
