Hi everyone! This is my newest digital painting that I finished yesterday! I had a lot of fun with this and learned so much in the process. Feedback is always welcome, and thanks for stopping by! :D

The colours are lovely and the composition flows nicely.

I have two minor critiques:
1. The background is a little distracting because it has more contrast than the character.
2. The shadow cast by the dress onto the legs makes the legs look flat. The cast shadow should be smaller where the dress is closest to the skin (because it's not obscuring as much light where it's close), and larger where it's further away. Where the fabric is flush with the skin, there should be no cast shadow at all.
Quick edit to show one possible way to show a little volume with the shadow:

For some reason, I have never considered this life-changing shading technique.
Thank you.
