OK first of all this is the first time Ive edited someones work to help, so hope it came out alright.



The left arm looked awkward and just short the way you did it, also her feet looked too long and uncomfortable and her knees and ankles were almost non-existant so I tweaked it a bit, and I think it looks a lot more natural this way. I would also make her skirt a bit more textured, as at the moment its pretty much solid colour.

Final thing, didnt notice before, isnt the handle in Veracs far longer? with a shorter chain, I know its a 2 handed weapon, but thats not a major thing and its been a while since ive seen a set ingame

There's a little bit of a perspective issue with her arms, the closer one looks noticeably smaller and the forearm is too long in proportion to the upper half. Move her winking eye down a pixel, it'll look more natural because the eyelid comes down over the eyes not up so much.

Another thing to think about is your light source ask yourself, where exactly is it coming from? This should give you a better idea how to shade her.

The face could use more detailing,and something about the legs isen't doing it for me, I am n ot sure what, but they do look right, and it is bothering me.

Pillow shading s basicly shading without a light source. Or, well, with the light source in the middle. This creates an ugly squarish effect.
Before you start pixeling, always define a light source, from upper left for example. The base the lighting and shading on that lightsource.

I know whats pillowshading, if you look at v2 and v3, you can tell the edits I made to shading.
i still lack shading skills, but if you look at my edit, you might be able to understand what I'm trying to do, and help me from there.
