You've done a really lovely job with this one c: I like the colour composition, the reds and pinks with the warmer greys work very well and lead to a nice atmosphere. The composition on this is pretty good too; the foreshortening of the right hand and the way the tail sweeps around frames the piece nicely.
Now, as for things you could improve on, there's a couple. The shading is very.. bland? I can't think of the right word, but basically, there could be a higher contrast between the lights and the darks in order to make it pop a bit more. Also, something that really brings a piece to life is using coloured light sources. If there's not meant to be any, that's fine, but something that's used in painting skin digitally is to use a complementary colour on a very low opacity for highlights or shadows. For example, use a purple/blue for the dark shading like under the neck, and use a pale lavender/blue/yellow for the highlights. It takes a little work to get right, but once you nail it, your work will improve by leaps and bounds. C:
Finally-- and I don't know if this is a personal preference or not-- but I feel like the hair and the tail could use a little more definition. They're both very blocky, and while it still works with the overall image, the rest of it is really quite detailed so I feel it would improve tremendously if you tightened up the details a bit.
However, you've done a stellar job on this, so nice one! :thumbsup:

This is a really cool piece, and I'd firstly like to express how thrilled I am that you went with a foreshortened hand rather than hiding it behind the back or something similar. The composition is pretty strong, but there is a fair bit of empty space in the background that you can literally just crop out. I can see you've put quite a bit of detail on the face, however due to the lack of contrast my eyes keep wandering away from it. An easy solution for that is to make sure your brightest brights and darkest darks are near the focal point ( if that was the face for this painting.)

I like the simplicity of the hair, because it works well and it doesn't distract from the rest of the piece. I wish you used the same type of hair lines & contours for the tail. The tail contours suggest a more cartoony look than what was used in the rest of the painting. You could try using those same hair curves on the tail as well to suggest that it's furry, and it would look more cohesive. That being said, I do love the gradient you've introduced into the hair and tail, it's really great.

In regards to your colors, I'm a fan of the monochromatic colors used. What's flattening out the colors a bit is that it seems like you're trying to shade with black and highlight with white. If you see how high lights and shadows work in nature you'll see that the shadows are actually dark but very saturated version of the color (red in this instance.) As the color gets to be lighter it goes from Bright saturated red, to a red/orange, to orange and then starts adding in more white. If that's a bit confusing, let me know I can show you an example, or at least point you in the right direction.

I really hope this helps you out, looking forward to seeing more of your work.

I am thinking of commissioning you depending on how much it is, but that won't be till after I am satisfied with everything going on in my Candy Pop! story line, I'd hate to start doing commissions of characters only to realize I still got some changes and shit to make :| 

But you are definately on my "people to commission from" list.

This kind of art, in my opinion, is always very pretty when done correctly, like the art above I really like how the tail curves around her legs you'd think someone with a tail would do that when posing but if I may suggest she looks more like she should be smiling rather than frowning just a small nip pick over the great colouring.

I may need to check in about getting myself a commission from you some time. I really like the overall loo of your works, though I picked to comment on this one because I'm biased towards tails and ears ^w^ I really like the shadow/shading style in this picture and how the hair flows around the head looks realistic for hair on a windy day. The pose is also very nice giving off a flirty feeling but I also get the impression that she's challenging the person she is looking at. The only thing I think could be improved would be just a small spot on the jawline where the lines look a bit wonky and the shape of her right side. I know you aren't supposed to see her right arm but how it is now it seems like her arm is missing looking at her shoulder and how it isn't rounded out. But I'm no professional by any means. It's a very lovely drawing.

There is a lot of emotion in this image and it is just to cute. Female anatomy in my mind can be hard since a female body seems to be able to be a lot more shapely then most men can be. It is amazing. D;
