A more detailed look, and can't help it but my eyes go straight to the panties and those carefuly drawn curves of ... ahem, well I gotta stop here.
Showing off so much doesn't lower your skill level, but it will overshadow your original idea by making people concentrate at.. well, panties. (Unless your purpose is to draw attention by adding some naughtiness)
Personally I still think this is a masterpiece and deseved the DD.
But a suggestion. I really feel bad how artists nowdays sexualize the image of a little girl which is not even an adult. Let your technique and message behind the artwork speak louder than panties and breasts of a little yet to grow girl.
Don't get me wrong here lol. My purpose is not to be mean to you. Just a casual advice I'd give. I love your technique, but... those panties lol. I can't see this image properly when you as an artist bring them out. I mean come on dude.. atlleast would be so much better if instead of a little girl you painted a sexy fully grown woman. THAT I'd call appropriate.
Still a masterpiece though
But since you are very sincere.
This Taiwanese girl named Candy
Her 20 years old
Her 42 years old
This shows one thing "Asian female aging more slowly"
just like...My girlfriend is 31 years old.
Height 150 cm, weight 40 kg, C cup
I guess when you see her, you would think she's just high school student
(even primary student)
I think the most lovely age is 16 ~ 30
But Western's 16 ~ 30 year old woman, Maybe I'll feel they are 22 ~ 40 years

Here's some pin ups by Chris Sanders. He stylizes the woman's body, and pushes anatomy and yet it doesn't feel unrealistic. This is because despite pushing everything, he's a master at anatomy. Also, the women are still beautiful and sexy without having to show off every single asset at the same time.
And I mean, even if you really WANT to show off every single asset of a woman off at the same time, then just add more women to your piece rather than break one woman in every way. People are less offended by a panty shot than they are that it looks like objectification when you break a woman to show her off.
Anyway, cutting this short. If you'd ever like a red line or a more in depth critique, I can note you with further details.
They are very valuable!
I must choose to use it, or do not use it
Because it is like a ruler
Can draw a straight line
also can draw a boring line
(don't worry, it's not the panties that I care about) the perspective of the girl seems slightly off to me. Her body seems to be too twisted. And the horizon line of the sky in comparison with the foreground seems a bit compressed together.
but with that said, the anatomy of the witch is pretty good, and the design of her outfit is very pretty. It reminds me of a lot of old-school magical girl shows. I love the colors of the piece altogether, especially the contrasting colors of the sky. I give it a 4/5 ^_^ (never done a mini-critique before, so... yeah, I thought I'd keep it balanced. Hope I didn't screw it up)
I don't mean to go on an entire spiel about it. It's just not fair to say this isn't a great piece of art because of something like that, and that because of it, it doesn't deserve DD. And the panties comment was more directed at the first page of comments to the girl who can't properly reply to anyone. ^^''
To be honest I probably wouldn't have even commented but the DD is for the "great angles". *Shrugs* each to his own I guess
The painting style and color here is beautiful, but the anatomy REALLY bothers me because it's trying to go for a style rather than really understanding what it's doing. (basically, it goes "these are the elements of a woman I like, so I will capture all at the same time despite it looking weird and wrong in the end") Pin up art is beautiful, but it doesn't need to break the woman to be so
I always go by "if something bothers you about the piece, crit it kindly and then walk away" which I did.
And yeah, one reason you may not have immediately seen the incorrect anatomy is because the Boob and Butt pose, which this is, has sort of become commonplace in artworks, especially in comic books to the point that often times people don't even realize that they ARE breaking the anatomy, as they're just trying to re-create something they've seen a million times. It bothers me, personally, because it is a pose that feels more objectifying than flattering. Pin up art can be both sexy and very flattering to the women (even if unrealistic) while still adhering to anatomy.
