    Star Butterfly drawing

    So I decided to draw Star Butterfly with a wand-scythe thing and then experiment with glow and shading in Paint Tool SAI. Here's the result:

    CnC would be appreciated since I think I could've have done better.

    Looks pretty damn close to the real thing, but something's off about her face. I can't put my finger on what it is specifically though.

    I looked up concept art (I don't know this character), and noticed it right away.

    The eyes are bigger and taller in this picture.


    Anyway, regarding feedback, I think you should define the shape of the arms more so the elbows are more clear, as well making them less like just tubes.
    The shading is probably the biggest issue for me, there's a lot of noticeable smudging where you've coloured it in, which takes away from the solid cell shading of everything else, especially since you did fine with the lighting, it's best to just stick to one or the other. And myself I'd make the shading a little stronger, characters in a basic cartoon style usually don't have very soft shading and stick to a palette of strong bold colours.
    Lastly, a bit of a personal thing but I think the scythe is a little overdesigned (haven't a clue if it's something you came up with or it's an official thing she has but yeah), and I think it should be higher up, it doesn't seem like she's holding it to me based on where her arms are.
    Overall it's a nice simple drawing, I like it.

    Thanks for the feedback! I appreciate it. I'll take note of the stuffs you said in my next drawing.
