I haven't ever tried a Chibi, especially with humans. It lacks shading I realize but other than that, what do you think?
Yeah I kind of thought the votes would go like that. Luckily the delete and trash button works well.
I think for a first try it`s not that bad
You just get quite a few people voting "Hate it!" because they can, if you put options like that in your poll. Try to make your answers sound more neutral and you might get people's opinions instead of their annoyance about your poll
As for the chibi, I think the eyes are sort of creepy, but it's certainly not bad for a first try. You've got a nice dynamic standing position there.
Also not quite sure about the mix of hard edged and more smooth looking lines. Is that partly traditional, scanned in and partly hard edged computer colours? And the butterfly on the shirt? A soft edged computer brush? Looks like quite a wild mix...

Just needs practice, don't get too discouraged if your first anything turns out to be displeasing. I never do anything right the first time... My trash is full of stuff that just didn't work for me. And so is our compost, when it's food that I make a mess of.
Thanks for the constructive help all. I was reading how to tutorials and they said to make the eyes big. Personally I think she's a little creepy in all.
It was all mouse drawn as I can't afford a tablet yet so smooth lines are the bane of my drawing at the moment! The background with the grass I added through photobucket.
I personally like it You should of seen my first try at a chibi- it was so bad I was embarassed to post it (and didn't :P)
I love her hair *wants cyan hair XD*
Not bad at all for a first try!
I just realized what she reminds me of. The girl Susan on Monster vs Aliens. So out of proportioned to the scenery....hehehe
For a first attempt not bad at all. I find the hair is nicely colored but those eyes. *shivers* May I suggest another tutorial on how to do it anime style or something close. Besides that nicely done and whatever you do, don't give up.

I actually like the eyes a lot. :]
I don't find them creepy, I think they're a nice simplistic style. Not the giant sparkly mess that a lot of "chibi" eyes tend to be.
I think with some shading and some clean lineart on her hair/body this could be a really great style, once it's cleaned up and you work a little more on the basics (like anatomy/coloring/etc -- though it's kind of hard to tell in this pic since her skin is so light and her feet are covered).
I say keep it up!
