Decided to work some more of the scetch... training lighting
This is Kayla, but in chibi form...!


Aww, I see what you did there with the strange-looking text on the screen, there. Nice one.
For those who have no idea what I mean, lemme just say the letters K, a, y, l, and a on the picture, are pokémon.
At least, if I remember correctly. Sure looks like them, anyway.

Nice picture, though.

One question: where are the boobs? is there a reason why you choose not to give her a top or just have the boobs hang out?

HypnoSquido responds:

shes boobless, maybe they got to shy and ran away? x D
well shes supposed to be somekind of half reptile, so it was either no navel or no boobs...
and I wanted to create a character with no boobs^^

This is great, but there are a few inaccuracies regarding the lighting and how it is hitting her body. The light source here is a sphere, and the light it not blocked by any object or lampshade, which means the light is sort of going in every direction. Because of that, the light coming from the upper hemisphere of the light would be hitting her hair stronger than it is currently. It would also be bright on the bone structures of the left (our right) wing.

Because of the strong light, the shadows are also going to be stronger. It's all about the play of light and dark. If the light is hitting her left arm (our right) so strongly, her arm should cast a dark, solid shadow across her wing, but it doesn't. Her hair should also be casting a shadow over part of her face. Adding in shadows will help the illusion of light in this piece be more believable. A good rule of thumb is for every light spot, there should also be a dark spot in the picture. In other words, for every highlight, there should be a shadow. Right now, you have highlights and midtones, but no dark shadows.

This is a great piece though, and the choice of making the light source low adds a lot of very nice drama. Design and composition wise, this artwork is very strong! Nice work, I really like it!
