It was worth the wait as it looks really nice, shadows and shades on the body looking really good... The only kink I find a bit bothersome is the background. Now, I won't pretend to know what you were going for but it doesn't feel like it belongs and rather was just thrown there for character emphasis, which isn't a bad thing but not always a good thing either. For a first time, it could just have been a normal shadow with some simple traits of implied evil rather than have a squid, or squib ;), like overshadow figure in the background that defines the tone and substance of who is in the foreground to the onlooker.
Comparing the pencil and colored versions, I have to give both a good overall design with a slight edge to the pencil drawing since it feels more visceral as a bounty hunter who knows her job and is good at doing it.
Thank you very much. I'm happy to hear you like it overall. And yes I definitely understand what you're saying about the background and I can agree with it. I was actually hoping to get feedback on that too so this helps a lot. I'll definitely keep this in mind next time. As for the character, she's not exactly a bounty hunter. I'll get back to you on what she is as soon as I finish her character bio.
Thanks a lot or the feedback, it really helps :)
