...just joking. Lately, i was really admiring the character oprtraits in gba wars 1 & 2. They are gorgeous and rally innovative (at least for me). I love the idea of the double outlines and the 16 colors used more for the anti-aliasing than anything else. That's gOOd. So I decided to try to do a kind of CO portrait by myself. I'm not sure it's a success, but i'm quite happy with the result.
at first sight i must say that i was amazed by the character, she reminds me a bit of kenneth fejers style, and that is really a good thing. the skin tone is very nice, though it clashes a bit with the hair and very much with the pants palette. i would not mind her belly buttom being streched a bit. the pespective of her two arms is a bit off compared to the body, it might just be me. why is her left arm (my right) so dark? it does not really fit with the light source. the two eyes don't share size, but compared to their angle the size of them should be more similiar. the neck disapears and that makes the piece looks fairly odd.
Anyways... i like your art, and this is no exception. good work!

Not if she shaves.
On another note, I like the art. Diced is very right about the skin tone clashing with the hair and pants. I think you could add more light on her left leg (our right) since it shouldn't all be shadow according to the shadow. The pants are what makes the picture look odd to me. Whenever I look at it, it looks like her belly is stretched veritcally but it's actually an illusion created by the pants being so low. Meh, I shouldn't complain. This is the most action I'll be getting for a long long long time.
This is cool. I really like the shading style and character design. The head is nicely done.
There are a few problems with the anatomy though. The elbows should line up with the belly button when the arms are down. If you move the belly button up some, it should fix it. Also missing the clavicle bones (the ones that jut out ontop of the chest) which are important, you could probably shade it in. I also agree with Diced about the neck.
Lastly, I think the shading is abit off on the pants, it should follow the shading of her exposed body since it looks tightly fit. The nipples would be better if suggested through shading instead of the dots you used to indicate them.
Overall, good work!
Last note: Could someone give me info on this gba wars?

thanx a lot diced for our c+c. I reworked the issues and i have to say that you were right almost with everything. I must have some chromatic problems, it seems to me that i always have some problems with my palette. Well, didn't touch the eyes (but we'll see that later, maybe). I don't really understand what do you mean by the too dark left arm. Also, could you explain me more what's the problem with the neck ?
fixed some other issues on the face, some shading, etc... there you go with an update :
