This is very beautiful, Thee only 2 things wrong with this is: The shadow (on her body), and her hair.

The Shadow on her body should darker and more spread, since it is very cloudy to the left

and for her hair, it just looks off, It might be her bangs, because real life hair cannot do that, there would be a crease in the middle, like when you part your hair, if that makes sense

Other than that, everything is wonderfully colored and her anatomy is pretty accurate, Good job and keep up the good work~! u v u :heart:
