I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.

Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called "Linux", and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project.

There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called "Linux" distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.

I would break up the lines of your shading so add more volume to the work! The way you have it exaggerates the sharpness of the edges.
Everything looks blended with the amount of colours you have in this piece! I suggest adding some anti-aliasing to make everything look smoother!
Good job! It's exciting to see you improve!

TheOverGhoul responds:

Yeah, i kinda got the same comment as yours from my brother, lol. he said something along the lines of what you said and honestly, you two aren't wrong, so thanks, i'll keep that in mind :)
Only wish if i knew how anti-aliasing works though...
