Thanks, I totally see what you mean about the legs, I might try touching them up. I think I have some watercolour pencil around that I had to buy for my art GCSE, so I could try Indigosblue's suggestion.

ooh, i'm glad you say that, I wasn't sure if I should try and blend it more, but I kinda knew I would overwork and ruin it completely, so I kinda stepped back and left it there. I found it pretty difficult. I normally work with graphite pencil so I can rub it out or smudge it to blend, which I can't do with colour. I guess the choppy shading is because I shaded the same as I would with graphite but can't smudge it afterwards! Haha
I'm pretty disappointed with the leatherwork though. I think I did a pretty poor job on it. I think I could have done her eye better too
