I really love this :iconasdfghplz:
if you want a critique I only have a few
everything is amazing in this piece, the color palette, the lighting and the painting style gives it a soft touch , I really like it
if there are some negative points then I would say that the shoulder is small compared to the head and the edge of the lips
is really low, it doesn't feel natural. and there is something that really makes me a little annoyed (no offence) not to you! but it the fact that people draw the ear with out the leg of helix and just connect the helix with the tragus :iconannoyedplz: like this photo…

overall the drawing is really amazing ^^

Very nice. Delicately handled, beautiful character.

As for critiques: The main thing I see is that the shoulders are very small compared to the head. It looks as though you focused in on the shoulders when you were painting them and didn't compare them to the head size. Also, judging by the angle of the eyes and ear, it looks as though the head is tilted slightly towards us, so we should be seeing a pinch in the neck (and probably the sternomastoid muscles would stick out more, at least they do when I try). The trapezius could also be defined more on the right to make it look more realistic. I recommend checking out this video on drawing necks -- that's how it first clicked for me at least. :3

You say 'any critiques' but the only other stuff I can see is tiny nitpicks, so let me know if you want tiny nitpicks. :) Good job on the atmosphere, dreamy feel. ^^

Wow thanks a lot for the detailed critique!
After a while I realized too that the shoulders were the width as the head. I felt pretty dumb for it xD
I will definitely give that video a look :3
Actually I redrew the neck area some weeks ago, but didn't get around to upload it yet. I think I might do it today.

And I'd love to hear all the nitpicky things too ^^

Anatomy aside my main problem with the pic is that imo it looks rather boring somehow, and I have no clue what I could do to fix it...

Please, do not change the width of the shoulders. This is what makes this character so fragile and ...hmm...elfish.
Elves are no humans, just human like and their anatomy is comparable, but not alike.
This char is perfect. That!!
If there are any doubts about that, listen to that:…
