Near The Great Cold by Rinzley Near The Great Cold by Rinzley
So I've been working kind of hard on this for awhile. Still trying to refine that shading/colouring style as well as practising speedpainting.

I do love the progress I'm making with the colouring but I've had more experience with characters than I have with landscapes so it's pretty obvious that the scenery is, to me at least, kind of a blemish on an otherwise good piece of work.

[EDIT] I decided to touch up on her face and the background a little.

This is pretty impressive.

My only minorly negative comment is the chin, or perhaps the under chin, doesn't seem to point right at the chin. It points a little too forward.

Aside from that, though, this looks great. Good job. Keep practicing and getting better.

What doesn't point at the chin?

The upside down "U" under her chin. Her face is looking upper right. Her chin (and the chinbone/upper throat) should be as well. But the "M"(?) of her chinbone is pointing more straight up than upper right.

You mind if I tweak your art to try and show you what I mean?

Sure, but try to crop the picture in a way so that it'll be easy to distinguish which is the original =P

Okay. Here you go. [link] It's my own private site.

Obviously, my curved line tool is nothing compared to an artist's hand, but I think this illustrates what I'm trying to say better than my words are. Let me know if this makes sense or if you have any questions.

And I'm sorry for speeling your name wrong.

No worries about the name.
But on considering your critique I apologize if I might come off as too defensive here but I don't really see your end of the problem, but I do think it's valid because when looking at your edits I see where I REALLY went wrong. The jawline is too far up. I might change that eventually, so thank you :)

No worries about being defensive; it is your art. I was just trying to be helpful, and I'm glad I helped.

Oh no. Never treat an artist as an "auteur" unless they've earned it. The worst thing you can do to an artist is to say their work is perfect when it isn't because that's when they lose the motivation to improve. And I know I'm bad at taking criticism, that's why I welcome it, because I want to learn how to get better at receiving :)

But I digress, thanks for your help :)

Awesome coloring! (You've got some great light-sourcing going on here, yourself!) :D
