Well I may have gone a bit overboard with this but I learned allot and I think that I am improving. Hope you all like it and love to hear what you think. Thanks for taking the time.

Hey There, Better this time round, but still misinterpreting some stuff.
Like the hatchwork on the breast and gloves. You see how that solid black on the glove has lines coming from the solid, see also the lines running across the feather lines? This indicates a diamond stroke. It doesn't mean to draw the lines as is. Some of the other stuff you just have to go with common sense as to how the inking should be done, like the heart tat. It should have been done clean, one line. In the hair I would not mess around by adding extra linework as it takes away from the face and always keep in mind when drawing a female face that's suppose to be pretty, the less linework the better.

Here are what the diamond stroke would look like but you have to really line them up properly to achieve the effect that the penciller is looking for.

Yeah, I wish I didn't do so much with the hair. Also I was trying to do the feathering but I am not yet sure of how far to take it. I think I may just be getting control of it but I need to get more comfortable with it to really use it effectively. Here is a close up of the glove. Hopefully you can tell if I am even on the right track with it. The main problem that I am having is where to use it and how much to use of it. Also it can be confusing as to which way to fade it. Thanks.
