aw, thanks :)
Hey, thanks! I really appreciate the feedback. I'll definitely try more edged brushes

Heyo. first of all, you did a good job overall on this. I'm digging it. OK, My advice is to try to stay away from the "soft brush" or brushes that have soft edges. Think of it this way, a lot of traditional art tools have edges when applied ex: pencils, paint brushes, charcoal. the only thing I can think of that produces soft edges are airbrushes (actually, an airbrush doesn't behave like a soft brush either). Using edged brushes in digital will improve your technique and improve the coloring naturally. If you want a softer edge, try to blend colors or try shading like traditional style. Most art programs will let you control the "flow" of color into the stroke. As you progress, you will learn when to use the soft brush and when not to. Another thing is to not make black as the base color(example: gloves). If the base color is black you won't have any options to shade the black object because you can't go any darker. Most artists will use a dark grey to "represent" the color of black and use true black as a shade.(Here's a trick: if you want something to look darker than it really is, try putting objects that are light in color value around it. higher contrast = darker/lighter looking objects). Don't be afraid to use higher contrasting shadows/highlights as it will produce more depth (ex: Yellow jacket or hair on the left character). Just don't go overboard with the contrast and keep shadows/highlights consistent.

I can't really give much of a critique on your picture because the coloring looks really good.
Call it karma. Call it luck. Me, I just don't give a... BOUNCE!
