This is excellent, Troisnyx! I really like the overall style and all those little nuances, especially the bunched fringe under her clavicle. Since the character illustration ultimately takes up most of the frame, the lack of a background isn't even an issue. You've used a simple yet effective color scheme that is particularly eye-catching. The eyes have an especially realistic quality, as she gazes wistfully into the distance.
While this is indeed one of your most impressive works to date, there are still a few issues to address, so I hope that you can take a bit of constructive criticism along with the compliments. We can only learn through experience, after all, and the artist is often too close to a project to view it objectively. Hey, that's what feedback is for!
First off, the arm holding the bodhran beater/tipper looks a bit too long for her other proportions, and the fingers are bent at a rather impossible angle. And yeah, I know...hands are hard. Next, while this character's head isn't inordinately small, her face and jawline still don't quite match up with her neck, which could stand to be a touch less wide. As such, her ear looks like it's attached more toward the back of her head, rather than the side and a part of her face.
Continue practicing your illustrative skills and the sky's the limit. Best of luck in all you do, and oh yeah—Happy Saint Patrick's Day! To your health.
