color is hard to get right. I wouldn't have any idea of where to start..which is why I stick to my pencils and ink.

so...here..the colors don't work as well as they could for me. tho first, id say that the black and white art you chose is of pretty poor quality. no offense meant if you know the guy or something, but the line art is bad.
id say find some nice high res lines by a pro and try coloring those.

and because I don't know how to color, I cant articulate WHY this doesn't look right to me, except to say that it just looks not right. rendering techniques and color choices...just ..I don't know. it doesn't look like it all exists in the same scene. the sun looks bad and should go. her skin tones don't seem to reflect the sun shining on her nor the water splashing on her.
its just.. its getting there, but not quite there yet.
do you have other colors to share?
