That looks a bit difficult. I think if you started with more dark strands stemming from the roots of her hair instead of the side it would look better.

Nice job on the rest of the CG by the way :)

You know Dmario,

A teacher I had once said when struggling with something as inconsiquential as hair that you have probably started thinking too much about the work at hand. I would say, go back to the basics. When I draw hair, I employ some oldschool post impressionistic shapes of color (or when I'm sketching...just empty space) Let the contour like do the work for you. Sometimes the simplest images say the most.

Your pal, LLPerks.

P.S. What is up with the tale, Dude!

What is WITH her thighs? and her arms? either shes really fat (I doubt cuz her face is not "fat") or your proportions are wrong.. your'e a good artist but study life and anatomy

personally, i think if you just put in a few more strands on the lighter bits it would be fine.

I think that the lighting doesnt match. You did like a cell shading type thing on her hair which is good and then really realistic gradient shading on the rest of her body which also looks really good, but they dont match together. You should stick with one type of shading throughout. Also, her hair kinda resembles horns, but was that what you were going for? Her right shoulder, the hand that's raised looks akward too.

She's a beefy one. Her left hand looks a bit enlarged, unless that's what you were lookin for. I would NOT do her. :O

I agree with all of these critiques. Um...you REALLY might want to work on the proportion of the leg on the left. The left foot is tiny compared to the rest of the picture. Besides that, good work dmario.

A bit off topic... but your avatar is from Ultraman Nexus, correct?

I'd leave her hair white... I works for me. Hope that's a straight enough answer for you.

shes not fat, its just a strange perespective, but i guess I didnt nail it...i should have made the forward fist bigger...thanks all
