It is quite intimidating, amidst so many talented artists who dwell on this site, to come here seeking criticism. Specially when this is my first digital painting.
I started working on a grayscale painting, having later on started to work on the background (a mistake, I know) since I first drew the character and the background came much later on.
I am right now in a slump. I feel that although the piece is close to finished, that there's a lot of space for improvement, probably in regards to its lighting and depth and on other parts I cannot currently see.
Please give me your all and tell me what needs to be further improved in order for me to be able to conclude my painting. Cheers!
