Mandarina redux!
It was very fun to redo this. But my gosh. Her face. Her face gave so much trouble. I couldn't figure out why for the longest time XD

I noticed my screen can't differentiate between near-white colors very well, so if there's something weird going on with the lightsource, can I have a heads-up, please? D:

So I'm not so great with critiques, and this'll be kiiinda my first one. First I'd like to say how much of an inspiration you are to me, you're art is so lively and full of so much color. As "ahmetto run" said, though. It seems to be the placement of the face. The hair to face ration isn't working very well, it makes the face look small and the head looks just "stuck in there" if you get me. Also, I the hairline and face don't match up much either. It makes it look like the back of her head is very large, looking somewhat "boomerrang shaped". Like it's a large triangle rather than an oval. That's really it for me, the hands are well done as well as the coloring. As always, you're amazing with coloring! And I love the little details like the water dripping from the oranges leaf and the freckles all about her skin. I hope this helped and wasn't too awfully confusing~ ;w;
What do you think?

Tee-hee! I love the little orange in her hair! It's really cool how you made it seem to light up. :)

That was by accident. :noes:

The problem about her face is actually about her head. You drew her hair nearly in a 3/4 angle shot, but the face was drawn in a more straight angle than that. Umm... I hope I've been able to tell what I want to, my English really sucks.

YES. That is the problem. I couldn't describe it either. :noes:
The face angle turned out how I wanted (well it seemed okay now. There's probably so many flaws. I just don't see them yet XD ), but I kept changing it to match her hair. But her hair is the problem.
That means I have to go back and redo and study more heads :salute:

Yup. Aren't we all supposed to study? (sighs)
