Thanks a lot. :)

sweet !

yeah summer is here ! Colors are great and her facial expression is nice , complement her body posture.

everydaycombat responds:

Thank you! That's the feeling I was going for.


i dare say the hand holding the Popsicle is a bit strange, but the rest of the image is awesome enough to make up for it :p

my first impression of this image was, i love her hair!
even her expression is astounding, hard to say why but im longing for summer now :)

though may i ask, did you do this without any smudging? cause it looks like it.
I don't mean it's bad thing, im rather amazed about that; I wouldn't be able to paint anything digitally without the smudges function >_>

wonderful work, keep it up :)

everydaycombat responds:

Haha, thank you. Yes, seems as though the popsicle hand is the bane of this image.

Actually, no, I used the smudge tool a bit for the hair because I got irritated doing the highlights. I'm definitely tempted to use it, but I try to keep going with the technique of pressing Alt and clicking around the image to pick up color.

Pretty Good :D

This is a good jon.
I would just suggest going a little lighter on the colors?
Maybe use a different brush/texture?
I agree with BleedingAppleJuice-- The elbow crease would make the arm look more natural. Is it supposed to be a little twisted behind her? It looks nice, regardless :D
Keep it up! :D

everydaycombat responds:

Thank you. And my mom said the same about the colors... the girl's mouth is like a black hole, hahaha.

I'm such a n00b at digital painting. I definitely do need to learn how to use different brushes.

And yes, the arm is supposed to be twisted behind, as well as the elbow locked. But it does look weird, regardless. (I'm lazy)


I really like it. things you could improve on is making a full- body version. her arm holding the popsicle is a little screwed up. try making the natural elbow crease more visible. this will help stregnthen the painting.

everydaycombat responds:

Thank you. I'll keep your critique in mind next time I try a digi-painting!
