Under the Weight of Nothing by catazarch
An intriguing piece; the mind would sense the innate "weight of the world" which seems to be nothing more than clouds. I'm not sure of the scaling of the objects; clouds would be far above the ground, and to be close enough to "touch" one (aside from ground-level fog) would put the detail of the ground far away from the feet.

Am I seeing a tiled kitchen-floor pattern, behind the character? I do not know the significance of a tiled floor seemingly abutting right next to a grass-like area, or what those planar surfaces represent.

In the end, I get that the overall imagery depicts something of a task or chore, but maybe not to the level of being a "Herculean task". Perhaps with a touch more color or tonal contrast, I could have better seen what is intended, here.
Sonic OC - Bianca Hayes by JaneyKara
I would preface my critique with the fact that Sonic isn't so much my interest, but I do like to see hand-sketched original characters, in general. With this, I see a lot of "bright" colors, maybe skewed quite heavily into the orange and reddish-orange hues. That may be the character's "thing", though, so I won't judge on the coloring aspect.

The hair tied in the back is a nice touch, as is the clothing choices -- although the top looks a bit "stretched" across the character's left shoulder and wraps around the elbow; the shading may be a tad on the dark side, for the presumed direction of a light source. Eyes are a bit large on the white parts, in proportion to the black pupils; the whites of the eyes could be maybe five to ten percent smaller, and maybe the pupils could be larger by the same amount, IMHO.

Either she is wearing furry boots -- tres chic, no? -- or her legs and feet are just naturally so hairy. As I said, I don't follow the Sonic universe at large, so it's on me for not knowing the difference.

In summary. I like that you are experimenting with shading and gradients on the colors; but for the next phase of improvement, you may try feathering the places where two like-colors meet, to "soften" the sharpness of color transitions. The hair parts are good examples of something that could be softened a bit more, in contrast with the outfit, which seems like it may have been given a bit more attention.
