Use a lighter color for the shading of the hair. Another edit:



Re-used the darkest shade of her skin for the hair. You were going for a dark blonde/light-brown color?

Nah, i wanted to make it a normal brown (maybe a bit reddish).
That's a really good edit though~
Crits on the rest of the sprite are appreciated too :)

Right now, the biggest problem is your pallet. The sprite has around 11 colors. Not bad really, but some of the colors are just so similar, that some could just stand to be replaced, or have their color changed slightly. I took a shot at it. The new one has around 8 colors.

It looks very much the same, but has quite a few less colors. I don't know if you were aiming for color conservation, but it's a good thing to keep in mind.
I also added some highlights to the hair and eyes. When working with brown hair, a shade of skin color quite often works very well for highlights too. There are also a few other things, but I'm running really short on time, so I'll let the edit speak for itself. Hope this helps!

Here's my stab at editing it, tried to give some more depth to the dress, and brought colour count back to 6.

New update with less colours~ (It has 8 colours now)

I took some of your advice and here is the result.

@Trevorius
I agree with your point, but your edits are a bit weird... I really don't want to offend you or something! I thank you for taking your time to look at this :]
I'll try to add some depth (if I figure out how :A)

I did some changes, played around with colours and tried some slightly different shading ;o
