I'll critique Ukraine since I am familiar with that character.

The waist should be higher under your bust and wider. The pants themselves look far too long for Ukraine, as she tucks them in to her boots and they stop below the knee, probably in your best interest to cuff them below the knee area so you can fit them in the boots. I feel like the blue could be a darker shade of blue for her pants as well. Her bow seems stiff and stands up a bit, perhaps line it with batting so it has a bit of a stiffer bow? Uhm obviously you probably know you need the wig and headband. That's all I can see. Good luck on finishing it!

SpazItUp: Thank you for commenting. I was half a sleep wen I posted this so I forgot to say that I am not wearing my boots in that pic, the pants I know are a bit long, but if i tuck them in it should be ok right? I agree that the waist should be higher, I hah a problem with it sagging. and yes I my wig should come in net month.

Her boots are skin tight so if you try to tuck in pants too long it will bunch and look awkward and it won't fit. (trust my I wear rain boots at the barn and anything but riding pants or skiny jeans or leggings is hard to fit in them) Your best best is to cuff it around your mid calf area with an elastic in it so you don't have to stuff the pants in the skinny boots.

Karkat's horns seem like a good size. I like the way you fixed them to a thin strap rather than a headband. Sollux's horn may be a little too big and too close together, but I'm not entirely sure it matters, given that their renderings vary between sprite mode and hero mode. I do love the painting job you did. Very clean and precise.

kuko-chan: thank you! I agree the Sollux horns are a bit to big.

SpazItUp: ok I'll look into it.
