I'd love to post my whole sketchbook (where I

( :cries: ) so for now this is all I got...

______________________________________

And yes I've noticed the crappy linework and
shading... Excuse me for that, but come on this
is one of my first times shading (6th time to be
exact)... No, the tortilion or blending stump is
not a way to cheat when you're shading, it's
just a tool to substitude your fingers or tissue
paper when softening or blending your shades.
______________________________________

Damn my scanner for gray-ing (I can't find the
right word) the paper (on the picture anyway)

Spam, hate, advice, I'll take all.

Well there's always room for improvement though :D Because I'm not really that happy with the shading, while it lookes exceptional, texture wise... I think I over did it a bit with the 'colors' T_T; I can't decide if it's to dark or if it needs to show more light though. Though I'm pretty happy with the way she turned out (hence the fail flow of the dress...)

Well, I still think it was really great (especially for a first try! xD). You still have time to improve so don't worry about it. :3
