pretty good, but, like all the comments say, it does need a little shading. Great work!

Oooooh... that little triangle thing on his extra life face was his MOUTH... I thought it was his nose... And I thought his nose was his eyes...

Well, if you want a quick way to shade it, you can borrow MY way: Open it in Paint(or something similar) and use the eraser's right-click option to dust the edges with a darker color.

I prefer to use JascPSP7 for shading. I use the "Magic Wand" tool to select one color and the "Lightness to Target" tool to give it anime-like shading with nice, soft edges.

It's a pretty good picture.

For shading, I literally DRAW the shading on the picture. Then when I scan it, I just split the shading from the drawing, fill it and add some blur. Never been so easy.

Let me taste
Let me feel
I need to know what you keep inside
No need to speak
Just let it be
Carry out this wish for me let nothing interfere

Rise to submission
I'm still beneath in the soil

Discard your clothes
Let loose you hair
We're intertwined forever and have always been
Say the word
And I'll depart
Upon your lips dwells nothing but the meaning of my cause

And so comes the dark
Vibrant as ever before
Flowers already withered
In this endless winter of souls

Ooooh, I like! His left foot might be a tad small given how it's closer to the camera than the rest of his body, but that's my only boggle. Don't even mind the lack of shading [having spent the last 2 hours fiddling with it in Photoshop... Of course the part you start with always looks too bright than the rest and you have to add shading to make it match and yadayada... ].

Nice work.

Hm, it doesn't look too bad for a bit o' flatshading, really. You've got the pose and such right, that's a great 'solid' bit of overall drawing talent.

For me for shading... I use GIMP for all my coloring bits. I more or less magic wand the area I want to color, dump color in it, go to a different layer with a multiply bit on it (with the same magic wand selection as before), and draw in the new color manually, using a brush with not-quite-full hardness. This makes a nice hazy edge. Then I just draw in the rest of it (the selection stops it from drawing all over the picture), and I wind up with a somewhat nifty cartoony shading thing.

But, that's just me. :-)

Though I'm put off by all the blood, I still think this is a nice picture. Cute and rugged pulled off in unison, quite nicely.

His left foot seems smaller than his right... not qute the same shape as well. His toes on his right foot flare outward as they flow from the ankle, while the left foot is more straight.
