Pretty happy with this one. Enjoy !
You should see a cartoon called "mononoke" or medicine seller.
Very good work, and explains a lot about them.
I will try to find a web link for you.
You seemed to have continued your shading efforts with the head. The skin and hair are very nice and stylised. Your character's nose is a tad too high on her face. I think you may of been trying to make it look like she was tilting her head up. If that was the case, make sure you angle the entire head (the chin should be up higher too)
Over all I think it looks good. The only thing I'm really disappointed with is the syth/sickle. Not only does the viewer need to guess at what it is because of where the handle is, but there's not nearly as much shading or highlights as the rest of the picture. It almost looks like an after thought. Like you drew the character holding a staff, coloured it in, added the webbing/strings then decided "aww, a blade would be cool!" which is fine, but don't let it show. Take the time to wrap an extra string around the tip or shade it to look shiny.
Over all, I like the picture and I like the idea. You did a beautiful job shading and highlighting the character.

Hey, ProjectComment here
Cool character, I like her determined look! Well, she’s got nothing to fear when she can handle this big sickle Oh, and her dress is cute. You drew and shaded these frills very well.
There are some minor details, that would improve the picture a lot. First I can’t figure this sickle out because the shaft of a real sickle would start at the left end of the blade and first I thought it was missing but then it was there in the middle and that’s very confusing because I can’t see how it is attached to the blade. Also the blade looks very wobbly. If you’re drawing in photoshop, such big curves I always draw with the pen-curve tool especially if a nice, smooth line would not look weird and on a blade they definitely wouldn’t.
Then her nose is veeery high. I noticed by looking at your gallery you do this a lot, so maybe you like it as a style but in this picture it looks way more weird because the line is starting at her hair and creates the illusion, that her nose starts where her hair starts.
But otherwise interesting character you created, I’m curious what’s up with her
I didn't noticed I drew the sickle wrong... Maybe I should have taken a reference. XD
Oh yeah, the blade looks really wobbly, but the entiere lineart looks wrong tbh. I started to learn digital art only few months ago, so I'm not familiar with all those tools yet. Lineart is one of the most difficult part of the drawing for me, I'm just unable to draw clean and smooth lines - but I'm practicing !
And I draw with Paint Tool SAI.~
Haha and for the nose I'll try to draw it less high the next time XD
I'll maybe update a 'text' about her background later, would you like me to aware you when it'll be done ?
Thanks for this helpful comment anyway. <3
Sure, maybe you can reply here, because sadly dA doesn't alert when a single drawing is changed
