I'm really nervous since it's my first post but here we go...
I really struggled with the hair but I think it looks convincing enough now.
(edit: palette changes and animation tweaks!)
Thank you for the feedback! After examining the image more I agree with your points 100%
I'm still learning so I welcome any feedback on my art in the future
The composition of the main image after I clicked the preview was a bit unexpected. I think it's a pretty way to present it! The portrait itself is also pretty. I think the midtone of the hair could be slightly darker (or the darker tone lighter) for a more balanced contrast.
I think adding just one frame to the blinking animation would also be a good improvement. I have a piece in my gallery called Akina Kart where I did just that if you'd like an example.
This is cute! I think the hair looks pretty good, nice job
