-Her left breast is too pointy. Normal breasts sloop down in a pear shape (breast expert, yeah!)
-Like the hair action a lot
-More darker shading in the mouth (more dark-red on the top to create more depth)
-Her right arm gets little "wiggly" at the joint between the forearm and arm, make it more dynamically angled
-Right thigh is bigger than the left thigh
-Nice guitar detail, adding shines to the red part would not be so bad
-Left eye lacks the eye part of the eye
-The overall picture's flow and "movement" is nice though

Have you ever tried the free art program GIMP, Open Canvas 1.1, or Paint.net? Smile

GIMP didn't work? That the heck? It should not be too extensive to be too strong for the modern computer. Oh well; if it did work, it offers the basic PS colors/effects/tools, and I honestly think if someone can master GIMP, they could get the same quality as PS (and better, it is free!).

http://www.gimp.org/windows/

Open Canvas 1.1 is a really smooth painting program like Coreal Painter except it takes up tiny space on the computer and is really easy to use. You do not really need a tablet to use it. If GIMP did not work for you, you could always try Open Canvas 1.1 for coloring.

Paint.net is a really basic better-than-MS-Paint version that provides the basic resizing, typing, coloring tools, but it is not as extensive as PS or GIMP. However, if you are always struggling with annoying resizing/basic colors/shading, you could always try this one.

I love how I have to advertise everything.

Yuna's head is too small for her shoulders.

Her right arm looks mangled.

Armpit is too low. Armpits are generally higher than the breast. It is too low here, even taking perspective into consideration.

Hips are too large and it doesn't look like she has buttocks. My suggestion would be to draw yuna without her clothes on, then once you have the anatomy right you can add the skirt.
