Shes not 100% mine but i think ive made such changes that i can call the new character mine and give her the name Olive

You can find a minor work in progress then you can se the origial picture and some steps towards the final brushstroke.

i dont know who the artist for the original picture is but if he sees this then thx for a practise image ;)

wait, i'm having trouble telling from your wip...
did you re-create the image or add adjustments to the original?

I havent done the original "and i dont know who the artist of the original is :/" but ive done all te changes after that and i think it's enough to post it as mine if i write that i havent done the original

what i meant was, did you re-draw what the artist already did with changes or did you just paint over what the artist already did.
i personally would be honored if someone tried to re-create one of my images, but i would be slightly offended if someone just painted over my stuff and posted it online, even if they mentioned that it wasn't completely original. I'm just saying, it's very artistically ambiguous to post a paintover, especially when the original is so unique. You mentioned that it was practice, which is fine, but you might just want to keep it to yourself and post a more original piece. Keep in mind to, that these are my opinions and someone else may feel different.
if it is a re-creation, good job then. try do it from a different angle so it's not so close to the original. that would be cool.
As for a critique, the extra hair is nice but it looks a bit like it is growing out the flaps of her hat. watch out for your shading because it is looking a bit chunky (specifically under the left breast and armpit) try using a larger brush on a softer setting.
