Pretty gorgeous Rika. your art is coming along so nicely.




The main issue I am seeing here, is everything is falling flat. Forms are not 3d shapes. This is due to values across a form being too uniform. its super noticable when we swap to greyscale and look at the coral at the bottom. But is also true across the whole image.

Mostly all I did here was select an object. and used a round airbrush set to overlay, with a light mauve, and used it to make things round. and, some touchups here and there. darker shades, and specular light on more reflective surfaces.

The contrast for the whole image could be pushed as well. I also lightened the background a good amount to really separate it.
