So I wonder if I can get comment from random strangers does she look better with a skirts or as my sisters say "She need a pants, or does she dress like you?" (I dress in most random way.)
I haven't finished the drawing yet especially the legs and arms which I'm saving it for lasts.
Reason: Ambiguous thread title
Sorry if it's no help ^^

Fashion is a really strange thing. I wish I took some time to study it earlier in life.

But then you add the color of her hair, the color of her eyes, and that hair clip and it's like a cacophony of colors. The stripes don't help, but I really think that the colors are the problem. There are too many of them and they compete with each other.

I actually love looking at fashion since it's an art in itself and it's fun to see which trends and fads come and go (who here remembers ponchos haha). Gumm-p0p I think you would benefit greatly from looking up clothes references from websites so you have a better idea of what looks good or not. I have a whole folder of fashion references in my bookmarks so I'll share some links.
* http://www.modcloth.com/shop/dresses --> Modcloth is a wonderful website where it has chic dresses and the selection isn't always the same. This is good for teenage to adult woman fashion since the dresses have great variation. There is other stuff besides dresses though!
* http://www.roxy.com/family/index.jsp?categoryId=2818165 --> Roxy is an American brand of clothing for teenage girls; you can look up Quicksilver which is geared for teen guys.
* http://fashionblast.com/ --> Personal favorite site of mine; more fashion geared towards Asian people, but it's wonderfully cute
* http://www.forever21.com/Product/Catego ... m_whatsnew --> Forever21 stuff for men even though they also mostly cater towards women.
There's a ton of clothing sites out there so I really encourage you to look up more stuff so you can get a better idea of how fashion/clothing works Hell, pick up a few magazines like Teen Vogue for instance.

so to ask if it better than this one.
I was just sketching to see what position her arm was going to be at since I'm not good at that just yet.jeje wrote:her hands are... weird... not relaxed and not... natural?
jeje wrote: darker colored clothe will be at the bottom instead of the top
Sharm wrote:The outfit isn't weird because of color, it's because you've got a shirt striped with color paired with a skirt striped with pattern. It's also a structured casual shirt with a unstructured casual skirt. They're either too alike or not alike enough. A really structured blazer would look good with that, or if you want to keep the stripes, making it a wrap shirt instead might work. Or you could change the skirt to an a-line or give it gussets instead of ruffles. You could also layer some jewelry to break up the lines and give the whole thing some direction beside just horizontal.

or try making the skin tone brighter?

MaiMai wrote: Your lineart isn't very tight which makes the coloring of the stripes of the top particularly messy. And Sharm is right about how the skirt and top don't go together due to the stripes.

I'll keep ALL of this in minds.9:19 wrote:I also think the colours are mismatched.
@ MaiMai and 9:19
thank you for the links.
Most of the people say that it the color so maybe I'll try to do something with the colors.
*Pump* Time to make some changes

I'd suggest using less saturated colors on the hair tie, tone down the bright yellow of the eyes a bit, darkening the skirt and making the black stripes dark gray instead of black.
The colors you're using for shading seems to be rather monotone (the original color + black), which in my opinion is not a good way to pick shading colors!
Some links that may be useful to you:

I think the best way to learn how to pick shading colors is to grab some images of art you like and use the eyedropper tool to see what colors they use.
Good luck! (:
