Hi Aurelia! Most of your works are really nice! This one is also good, but it could be enhanced in some points.
The weathervane (is it the right name?) has 3 colors that are calling more attention than the face of the girl: red, purple and dark blue. You coudl still use these colors, but less saturated.
About the girl's face itself, notice that her maxilar and cheeck are bigger than on the original photo you were based on. This gives the idea that she is not so child anymore. Her eyebrows are also more defined than the original model. The cilium, too. Those elements as they are displayed in this image contributes to the idea that the girl has a more adult face, while her hand actually belongs to a much younger kid.
I'm only writing this, because I understand that you would like to have some constructive critiques to help you enhance your work. I hope I have contributed to that.
So you can think about this for the next productions!
What do you think?

Wow! Gorgeous colored pencil portrait. I love all the detail you drew into her, the shading, blending, the layers of color in her flesh tones, the texture of her hair and how you were able to accuratly capture her expression. Amazing work of art. Thanks for sharing.

No, it's something I had had in mind as soon as I saw the reference picture. But I wouldn't mind selling it lol

In my humble opinion, if you could have changed the colors and tones of the pinwheel a bit to give it a more realistic feel to match the girl, it would have been more awesome :) But overally you did a lovely job, I totally love it! :heart:
