Girl in a school dress

I just finished colouring my picture of a girl in a school dress which I had sketched previously.
I find that the legs and the tips of the long hair wasn’t drawn the best, so I don’t particulary like those parts in the pic, but all in all, I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.

This would be about my3rd attempt at colouring a picture i’ve drawn. Since it’s been a while since I have used Photoshop, I ended up watching my copy of the series “Deji e no bunpou” (Grammar of Digital art) a Japanese TV programme which follows how professional illustrators draw and colour their artwork. So I essentially was watching it and trying out the techniques described. Although as expected, I wasn’t able to do anywhere near as good at they did. Haha! (^^)

It took me about 6-8 hours to colour in this picture. However, I think I spent half that time watching the deji e no bunpou series.

Have you seen Deji e no bunpou before?
