Love the use of greys in this. It's grey tone and yet still a vibrant image!

What a very intriguing subject and such a nice pose and color scheme to go with it :) Love how the figure stands out from the background as well.

So that would mean, if I DO, please DON'T comment..? ;)

I suppose I shouldn't have commented then. :rofl:

I like it but i'd love to see some red in it. I mean, between being the Goddess of fluorescent pink and orange sunsets and the one in charge of watering apple trees, I'd imagine some more colour for some reason. Other than that, it's really cute. I like the shadows.

I absolutely love this, your style is looking great. I have no critiques whatsoever on the style itself; maybe that's the thing about styles, you can't really critique them. But I most definitely can offer an opinion, and that is, I love it. I love how massive the heads/hair is, yet how small the faces/facial features turn out to be, and then a wonderfully proportioned yet tiny, delicate body to top (or bottom =) ) it off. If I were to critique, I would simply point out that the shading on the hair is a little off, but generally, I think your style is great. Kudos!

I really like this style! You've incorporated rendering style lighting/shadows in a thin line drawing! The effect is really striking. The hair looks good, but the dark shadows to the right are a little matted. Hope that helps!
