I like your colors, but your anatomy, perspective and proportions are not right. Especially anatomy. I this is you first full body painting, you really should use a reference for the pose. Many artists do, even the really amazing ones like my favorite, Linda Bergkvist. Nice start, but you have to remember and practice the basics first. Get the proper shapes down before you go into detail.

I hope I don't sound too harsh or mean. I do like you concept (huge fan of mermaids here), you just need to work on some fundamentals.

Also, it might be a good idea to add more contrast to your shadows, your colors are very light right now. :)

Yes i knew that but i always work with very light colors because you can easy
put on darker one`s but it`s pretty hard 2 go from hard light to softlight
learned that from my graffiti days:buttrock: but that`s over now:)
