It's better to sculpt with shadow rather than with highlights if you want defined masses.

The black outline isn't helping it look less flat.

Use all your values!

Well, i watched your fairy and i felt that it was my oportunity to draw a woman body.

I didn't edited it completely i would take me too much time xD.

First, you have a nice lineart, but before coloring it you should modify the curved lines for not to look jaggy.

Here is it, (hair and wings were done without thinking xD).

Just want to point out, although big (but it's a fairy, lol), the head shape is much more realistic in the original.

Acually the motif of a black-haired depressed fairy is very original and interesting. Keep it up!

Update:


i have redone the legs, because they were awful, but Im still not satisfied. I guess the lightsource is in a bad position for this to become better.
I was wondering wether I should include a6th color between "dark" and "even darker", because I have so little color room to act on the left leg. Any opinions?
