It's pretty good, but honestly I'm just curious about the title. Why "trading secrets"?

I decided to have her blushing and looking a bit shocked. I'll leave what secret she's just been told up to interpretation!

I like it! Her hands and feet need a little work, but it's better than anything I could do. :)

Yeah, I'm terrible at hands. They're so damn hard to draw. Just spent an hour drawing my hand repeatedly from different angles. Hopefully with more of that kind of thing I'll get better in the future.

Fantastic work, mate!
An impressive amount of work has gone into this, I can tell! A damn sight more effort than goes into any of mine, at least :lol:
I love the colouring and shading, it's fantastic. Maybe work a tad on perspectives, since her arms and legs seem at a strange angle, but that'll surely come with practise.

Keep it up, lad :D I'd love to see more!
Like stupid, silly doodles with no point? You've come to the right place, friend :^)
I also occasionally write oneshots. Why not have a skimread?

Her eyes seem a bit too close together, perhaps her left eye should be a tad more to the left? Great drawing nonetheless! :)

Thanks guys! I've still got a lot I need to improve on by practicing perspective and anatomy etc, but it's fun to occasionally draw a KS character in the meantime.

It doesn't have to be amazing to be good anyway, I can't even draw stick figures :P

Sure the anatomy looks a little wonky, but it doesn't really detract from the piece as a whole. And like you said, you're practicing.

Rock on, man!

The anatomy's believable, I think the skirt is a little odd in the way the material falls. But it's a great practice piece, miles ahead of anything I can draw, for sure!

Appreciate the kind words and the critique. I've got a lot more studying to do, that's for sure. I'll draw another of the girls soon though!
