Cotton Candy Girl

Hi all, thanks for the warm welcome :) Here's a character design I did for a challenge on facebook. Looking for any suggestions on how I might improve it or areas you think I should focus on to improve my characters in general :P I find my work tends to feel a bit flat but I'm not sure what to focus on to counteract that, so any advice is very much appreciated :) Also any thoughts on the colours? I'm not so sure about the blues and oranges in the piece.

Thanks! :P

I really like these colors, vibrant but not painful to look at. I don't think it looks flat her waist and legs are really nice. If I had a criticism it would be I wish the skin had as much contrast as the rest of her. I understand that the skin would be softer than the jacket or pants, but from first glance, the hand on the glasses looks like one solid color.
But seriously it's beautiful <3

I don't know much about art but, I know when I see something awesome. This is awesome. The character is really memorable off a first glance. Also, the pose and look she suggests she has a bit of an attitude or sassiness. I can somehow sense her personality without her saying a word which is great design in my humble opinion.

I gotta say i absolutely love the color scheme you went with. As a fellow illustrator the on areas i see you can improve on is the jackets sleeves one is longer than the other. The second being the lower torso seems kind of off by a bit. But you pulled off the pose remarkably well. Looking at her makes me want to eat some cotton candy and some bubblelicious bubble gum. lol I wish i would have your coloring skills but i'm a traditional artist. Over all i give your art a 8 out of 10.
