I run into this painting for the second time while browsing my favourites-folder, and this time I realized there is a link to the video that shows us the making-of! It's always interesting to see the progress of paintings, I think it gets you closer to the original idea. This time it didn't only make me appreciate this more, but also point out some things you might find helpful.
First of all, the paper getting wavy when wet. It is a challenge all of us need to face at first, but it's not something you need to live with. The tricks of getting it straight are not too tricky, all you need to only stretch it before starting. For using time in preparation you'll help yourself a lot in the end! For stretching it you should soak the paper in cold water for 5 to 10 minutes, tap off the extra water and tape it well and straight to a any hard board (table board is fine). Then let it dry well, and ta-dah! Your painting-papers will stay in form no matter how much water you use.
Another thing here is, that you obviously have been planning the painting well before starting, I can see that, but did you come up with using the ink/marker only later? Because it seems like you only use it in some parts (another side of the left arm), and it makes the picture look a bit more unfinished than it actually is. The lines of the watercolour are clean and sharp, but the ink has some mistakes every here and there in the background. Maybe you could try how it looks with only simple lines, like you did in some areas? Because when you sometimes make the line thicker, you easily forget to do it everywhere, and the lines get uneven. I know how it is to feel like finishing the work already, but I'll tell you: You can take your time. When you pay attention to the last minute touch-ups, you can feel the difference.
After all this i want to remind, that i really like this. The idea, pose and the way you mix colours in such a careless yet lively balance, it's amazing. :heart: Keep it up.
