i really like the contrasting colors and saturation, it gives her a more dramatic feel. not everything needs to come from the same color family, possibly if you added the bright color somewhere less saturated in the background as well it would look less like... whatever bothers a few people about it, without taking away from her figure.
It's great to see you getting things done, especially after reading about your artblock on your lj. She seems a little... stiff maybe?... but the pose/angle and colors are awesome, this is way better than what comes out when I'm feeling uninspired. : P
...I agree. It doesn't look finished. But I hadn't done any art in over a month, so I was just happy to have something up to so that I was alive . I'll probably do more to it this weekend. At leat I hope I do!
ha ha ha .. I know exactly what you mean. I havent put anything up in months.. you should have posted it as a WIP.. I tend to post my work in Progress so It motivates me to finish it.. I got this on the works at the moment [link] Its so hard to find time when you have a full time job as well... *sigh* but i must say i hope to see your finish version soon!! Its lookin (^_^) really good.
