    What do you guys think? i'm new to using a tablet so I feel pretty good about this. I wanted some a bit more simple on the color side. I might try to do more detailed shading at some point but i'm not sure yet.

    Works for me.

    I'd throw a gradient in the background just to tone it down a wee bit. Either a top to bottom light green to darker green, or a circular with the dark beginning behind the head. It's good contrast now, but so vibrant it distracts from the face.

      Do you always use your tablet to trace photos? I've never understood the point of tracing a photo then "dressing it up" with a few elements like stripes to the scarf and garish colors. Do yourself a favor and actually put in the time to learn to draw and quit taking shortcuts because it's painfully obvious that you are.

        Yeah, right now what you've got just looks like a simple trace job with some saturated colours thrown on for good measure.

        So, as far as the drawing goes - I'd say have a go at it without tracing. Also, don't be lazy with lines (your mark-making for his hair is effective - but the lines on his scarf are distracting scribbles).

        With regard to the colouring - I'd tone it down a bit. Those bright colours clash and hurt my eyes. The colour choices you make can have a huge impact on the feeling your images convey. For instance, these bright, super-saturated tones scream 'cheap' - whilst a more muted, calm palette might suggest a move towards a more 'classy' piece.

        But, yeah, the main thing would be to avoid the trace option.
