congrats on the DD~!

And, seriously, the only thing I can find even SLIGHTLY wrong about this doll would be the hands. They seem a little small, but I only noticed them because I was looking for errors. And I'm happy to say that's the only one I could find. <3

First of all, great work with the MSPaint. XD As someone who works almost exclusively in MSPaint, I know how hard it can be. You've done well with it.

Now for some constructive crit:

I see your dragon has a very strong light source, one that you follow quite well. The highlights are very strong and the shadows are softer, suggesting that there is a very bright light source somewhere. The face and chest of the dragon show your light source well, but the wings tend to lose a little bit of the effect, particularly when you compare the shading of the claws on them to the rest of the wing. The wings kind of look a little dull compared to the rest. Also, the hair (Fins? Feathers? Not sure what they are) around the dragons face also seem to ignore the light source. Try adding some strong highlights around the left (dragon's right) of the face to emphasize your light source more.

For the girl:

The two things that struck me the most about her is her hair and her eyes. Her hair is shaded very nicely and shows a good sense of highlights and shadow and seems to follow the light source (however subtly) though you have to look kind of closely to notice this. Her eyes are very striking and I like the contrast between them and her face and hair. The only problem is they kind of look blank. She doesn't appear to be looking anywhere and kind of has the "thousand yard stare". That is kind of typical for dolls though, so it may be what you were going for.

What also struck me about the girl though, is the lack of light sourcing. At first I thought there was no light source, but looking at it closely I see you did try to give her some. But it's so subtle that it's almost not there and makes the girl look flat and boring compared to the dragon who has such a strong sense of light sourcing. All that really needs to be done to fix this is to make your highlights and shadows stronger. This will help the girl blend in to her surroundings more and generally make the picture better. It's just unlikely that the girl would have such a weak light source when the dragon has a strong one.

The only other thing that bothers me is the cliff. I really struggle with backgrounds and cliffs and the like, so I can see where someone else might also struggle with it. After studying your picture, I thing the major problem is the coloring. You've made some very good details on here, but the colors kind of make it look more like a negative photo rather than a cliff. It seems like the pallet is just a bit off.

Overall, I really like the picture. You've made some excellent details on the dragon without having the tedious task of making scales and have shown his muscle structure very well. The outfit the girl is wearing draws a lot of attention to itself without overtaking the picture. And the fact that it was made in MSPaint makes me a happy camper. XD More power to MSPaint pixel artists!

Congrats on the DD. Hope this crit helped out a bit. ^^

:) Thank you,and thanks so much for the CC. Some of what you said I noticed and had planned to go back and add/fix but I was on a tight deadline to get it in before christmas. When I get the time I think I'll go back and using your's and others CC, fix it up a bit. Thanks again! :hug:
