Reinboo: The position and angle of the girl is a bit odd to me... I think it would look better if she were at least slightly more centered and standing upright. The shading of the hair could use improvement - perhaps you could draw more individual strands of hair and add some more contrast/highlights? The facial features seem to be oddly positioned... it would most likely look better if they were moved up. It feels like they're all crammed in down at the bottom. I don't know if you did this, but it does help to use guides to determine what should go where before you actually begin the drawing. Also, there is no shading on the clothing, which looks out of place when compared to the face and hair (that is shaded).
Even though I've given a lot of suggestions, I feel I should add that I still think your drawing is quite adorable. I hope you are able to find something helpful in my critique.

Nothing wrong with it, just needs a bg maybe. And the top of her head where the hair is looks a bit smallish. Otherwise, i love it

umm....well i would make it less blurry so the lines are more prounced. the shadows kinda confused me too because a bunch go behind the trees and one goes out the front. i really like the drawing though, its elegant!
@idna: Sun is a bit wonky looking and the line at the root of the cactus looks kinda shaky. You could have added more shading or something to the sky, the christmas hat looks kinda odd or something. otherwise its pretty good

still a wip xD
Hmm.. i see a lot that could improve but lets start with her pose, it looks a little plain, like no perspective, no body movement, no hands... so you schould work on bodies. second, her hair i dunno why but it looks weird D: And she has no ear XD maybe that's why it looks off Also her eyes are to low, and her nose to high D: Gmhh, i'll just stop now... XD
(yes this is a drawing of me on a other account )
I've been thinking of making some changes with his hair and eyes
Okay... His mouth is really off center. ^^" Plus, his eyes are too closely set, maybe a little bit more space between them? And try to make the right eye look slightly smaller. His face is weirdly shaped. You should practice with the position a bit more, anatomy/perspective is a bit off. And the hair looks a little strange. (Oh lord I am such a hypocrite ;_; )
Just practice on how you draw people on the 45 degree angle type thing.
Try looking at other styles and look at how other artists draw.
Mine again xD It's unfinished and the thumb looks horrible T_T
(Also I forgot her eyebrows |D)
Sorry mellmonster if I'm picking on you D':
Her eyes are a bit too far apart, her neck is a teeenny tinnny bit too long (just a little!)
her shoulders are a bit on the pointy side. Some of the corners on her hair look a bit jagged. Maybe lower the eyes a teeny bit? ;A: I must say thought, its a really cute picture.

Tell me if anything's wrong with the anatomy so i can change it. Or if anything else looks odd ;A:
It needs more detail, more effort and time put into it. It's well done with the shading but it is in need of looking more realistic.
Was just practicing with shading and sketching, I don't expect much from this:

Kagemini: I like the use of color... I like that it's mostly black and white with the eyes and part of the background in color. The head seems a bit too large for the body, and the body itself seems a little... boxy? I don't know if that's the word I'm looking for. I don't know how old the girl is supposed to be, but judging from her outfit, at least, I think she could be at least a bit more curvy. The hairstyle is cute. The shading is nice; it could be improved, but I don't know what suggestions to make, really, since that's something I need a lot of improvement in, as well.

Holy lordy I LOVE THE HUNGER GAMES!!
Anyway~ Try to be a bit cleaner and a bit more detailed. I like her pose. Maybe next time you should try copying the face off a ref, it's much easier and you get used to drawing faces, because her face looks a little strange. Try use the smoothing setting when you draw, because the lines come out smoother and not so jaggedy. Well done on realism, I suck at it

It needs more shading definitely, her neck looks too long and wide. Her right eye looks is too far away from the nose. overall, good. better than what i could EVER do in realism, though xD

FINALLY finished it xD
+ The pose and composition is much better in this drawing. I like that your lineart is very clean. I prefer a bit of variation in line thickness, but that is completely personal preference, not a fault of the drawing. The shading on the skin looks nice. The hair style is adorable.
- The facial features still seem to be crammed into the bottom of the face rather than where they should be. Maybe that's just your style, though. It doesn't look "bad", it's just a bit odd to me. The object in her hand could be shaded a bit. The lines in her hair could be smoother. There's also a lot of negative space... if you don't have anything else you'd like to put in the background, maybe you could "zoom in" on the character a bit more in future drawings to remedy this.
Overall impression: I think this drawing is an improvement on the last one. Your character designs are always very cute.
+I think your last draw is an improvement over your earlier draws, and the composition is pretty good over all. I think you did a very good job of drawing the parts of the face.
-Looking at an image that I assume was the reference, the Leeloo's skin tone is a bit darker, the jawline should cover up a bit more of the ear, and Leeloo's right ear should still be visible in the shadows. The head also seems to be turned a little to her left, but you didn't get the eyes noes and mouth drawn on the same angle.
I think you did a very good job over all, keep practicing and I think you'll creating some very impressive portraits.
