I have been working on this piece for a while now and so today i realized that i don't know how to continue. I have no story or anything behind it i just want it to work as an image, ideas and critique are most welcome!
This picture has very nice colours, that may lead you to adding a few contrasting ones... Maybe define her dress (especially the skirt) a bit more and add a bit of blue colour to it (maybe dots ore stripes)?
Maybe you could move the girl a bit more to the left and add something to the right she is grasping at (or a small part of it so you can guess what it may be).
That brown "thing" in the right bottom corner could be some kind of animal...
The colors are lovely but it just took me a minute to see what's going on with her legs.
You see, her skirt looks like she's sitting. Wich had me confused about the legs til I realized she's actually standing. Maybe you could close the red gap on her tush and straighten the front of the skirt before proceeding.
And I wouldn't hide her foot except for if you're planning to make it tie in with the storytelling.
As for that. Ask questions. I'm asking myself right now: Why are her hands outstretched? Is she reaching for something? Is she smiling at someone?
Maybe that helps to develope the scene more.
Hi I agree with Arshes, move her to the left so she is not going off the page and she does seem a bit upright and kind of stiff, I love these colors and strokes are cool too!! I was told to work out the anatomy before rendering too much yesterday in a crit and It is such great advice to really work out the figure first, can't wait to see what you do. She's so cute!!

Much better, I'd like to point out what's going on to your composition. Think about those hands...what are they doing? They leading you out to the page. The hands are telling us the story because they're more expressive in that piece...so think about how you want to work the picture with those hands.
