First time posting...
I'm not very good at this kind of thing but I want to improve as an artist. So here goes... I'll try to not ramble. (I failed.)
I'm working on a drawing of one of my characters, Meleena, that I didn't plan it just kinda happened. I just messed around with some ideas and I wanted to do something unlike anything I had ever done. So I ended up shaping the idea around the golden ratio. Though that may not be as prevalent now. Plus I ended up not trying to color it, I always have to add in Meleena's glowing green eyes though, but I added a little blue too keep it from looking "sickly" (my fiancees word). I paint, I use Painter 98% of the time, on my laptop but the color is better on my desktop, so I did the blue there. Hopefully it looks good and not too overwhelming. Oh and I should say I wasn't trying to over do it with the detail in the tree and background. I want her to take most of the focus. I wanted it too look good but not hyper detailed, so in places the tree is kinda rough.
I know one problem some artists have is stopping before it's really done, I can't remember where I heard that. It's very true here! I thought I was done three days ago. I even test printed it but I was wrong. Then I decided to post it here since I can't stop finding things wrong. I figure I need more eyes than my fiancee and myself. We have been looking at it too long, and I have been flipping it to help with that problem, in fact it was originally facing the other way.
Also I didn't know how much I should resize it, so I just winged it. I hope it's not too large.
I guess I better stop stalling and do this before I back out... again.
