I like the pastel work. I always sucked at it.

For a critique, because I don't feel like I could really give a long, detailed on that the form asks, my first thought is the shading. Don't be afraid to go darker. Find your light source and figure out where your "absolute black" and "absolute white" are. and go crazy. :D

Thank you for the critique! I'm just kinda scared that I'll mess up if I shade too dark ^^; But I'll try to work on that, thank you so much! :3

Not a problem. That's what a friend of mine told me one day. And there's not really such a thing as "too dark" as long as you're aware of where your light source is and shade according to that.

Look at this. [link] The light source is in the top right. I could have even gone darker with the shading and used more absolute black.

Also, the closer the surface is to the light source, the shorter the shadows are going to be. So, the head will have short shadows while the feet will have longer shadows. :)
