A week-and-a-half back I did a character concept for Ellie Nott (http://68.media.tumblr.com/6675a9441310b8081307953c7f607f49/tumblr_ol4hk8n3eG1umvbxho1_1280.jpg), the protagonist in a Beyond the Pale short story, alongside the monster from that same story, and decided to make a painting of her whenever I got the chance. So I did.

To know more about Beyond the Pale go (http://beyondthepalerpg.tumblr.com/); to read the short story go (https://www.wattpad.com/story/93268513-the-girl).

This taught me two important lessons: 1) I have confidence in my work process for paintings as well, and am no longer fearful of merging layers more frequently; and 2) I got to stop giving the background so much attention at the start, 'cause I always end up flooding it with details that will eventually be messed with through effects and shit.

The body language and view are quite nice! Also the idea of different light sources - but in my opinion the sky should be darker so that the overall light is less bright. Otherwise the strong reflections of the orange light seem too much, especially over such a distance. Also, the colour of the sheet of paper more or less lets it "move" to the background, because the colours match too well and the paper is besides the next distinguishable object, the lamp. Not overlapping it.
The white light from the left and on the plaza (or what you call it) are working well to me.

Now that was more than I intended to write. But it came to mind ;)
