Update: December 14th, 2012 in the very early morning...

I just can't leave it like this, this one felt a little special to me so I just cannot leave this half-arse piece of work alone, so I decided to do some small touch-ups. Her belly button is now moved somewhere more appropriate and I added highlights... as promised. Now I think this looks a little better. Thank you for the feedback and I hope never to forget this. X3

I could work on this some more, but I rather just leave it as it is, and look it back thinking... "I can do better."

I just recently got my hands on Illustudio... and she works magnificently! Well I have yet to touch most of the features but I did however tried a few... and its like "OMG, this is perfect!" <3

Okay so I got this idea from a wallpaper I just recently changed to, and its awesome... sort of. X)

I still have something else to do, but for now I just drew this just for fun. Haruhi Suzumiya for the win! ^^

First of all, I really like the color pallette in this, it's very bright and summer-y and goes well with the theme of the picture. The background is nice, and simple enough to not distract from the character. Also the lineart is very nice, clean and crisp. The coloring is very good too. One thing (and this might just be me) but I would be expecting a bit more highlight in the hair, given the brightness of the sun shining on it.

One bit of critique on the anatomy, it seems like she has an exceptionally long torso, like I would be expecting the belly button to be a bit higher up, closer to where her arm falls across her body. Otherwise though, I think you did very well, I especially like the hair and the face, I think you did a great job on that.
What do you think?

Oh dear, sorry about my delayness! >u<
Really? Shweet! =D
Then again, I kinda made some minor mistakes in the process... but I'll definitely do better! ;D

Though the ocean background could've used some more detail, but for this one, I think this is alright.

As always, I thank you very much bro! ^^
