the title tells all.....this is kinda gonna become some sort of digital painting with an abstract backround.....but that can happen only after i get my summer job and work it for 3 weeks so i can order my tablet.... :( ......

the face needs work, and so does the hand....the hand is WAYY to stiff....and the hair-line needs work...the face seems a bit too tall, and is it just me or is the neck a teensy bit too long?

Well, It seems okay for a base but there are some things I'd fix before applying color. I hate telling people this becuase I also have problems in this area. The hair, looks like she lost the bet. Maybe the head looks so big because the hands are so small. I suggest you fix the hands, it'd probably be easier then redesigning the entire head again. I WISH YOU LUCK.

it looks good but i think that the overall picture could use some fine tuning and clean it up abit and pls resize your pic before you post it very hard to see

are you scanning in as grayscale or B&W? because it looks all choppy like you scanned in B&W (the lines are smoother if scanned in in grayscale). anyway refine the hair a bit, and try to find a ref for the pose and the hair, refs always help with tough drawings.

such as this

anyway the hair should all be the same length depending on where it is attached to the scalp.
