A little Illustration that I'd like to update and improve
Hi all! As a follow up on the community hangout today I'm posting some older artwork. This is a card created from an illustration that I drew several years ago. I made the patterned papers in the background to match it, and I'm fairly happy with those, and I like the vintage-y feel of the little girl, but there's definitely room for improvement and I'd love some feedback.
This was digitally drawn and colored with a mouse, and I think that it's a tiny bit stiff, and the flowers might be a bit awkward in her hands. The shading is a bit off - the dots were a brush I tried to create myself with no pressure sensitivity tools, so that's a clear area for improvement. The part that I think most needs help is the face, which just isn't quite right (though I'm not sure precisely what isn't working for me). I'm ready to start again with the tools I have at hand now, and I'd love some feedback from all of you on what could be done to improve her!
