Speaking of improving, there is a veeery small difference in regards to Regina's face. You've made the eyes smaller and the mouth should be a little wider, too. And I personally would add that soft shadow that delimitates her nose on her left side (right side for the viewer) because that way it the shape would be visible enough, now it could appear a little wider although it isn't.
I'm always nice when posting a critic, I hope you take it well :)

Faber-Castell coloring pencils - it was my first time using them and I had no idea how it was going to turn out!
Because it was so heavy on the one color though I have just a stub of my dark blue left, and a good chunk of my black is gone.
But hey, I had real fun doing it and it was totally worth it :)

I'm terrified of using colour, i think the last time i used a colouring pencil was in primary school LoL Have to do something about that...

About the stub, i know what that's like, I had to go buy 2 new packs of charcoal because my darkest was finished LoL

Well if you start lightly, you can check your lines before you go over them too dark and you can erase them if you need to.
I mapped the image out in 2H pencil first.
I was scared too, but trust me once you get going it's really fun!

And yeah.. but I don't want to have to buy a whole new pack just because two of my colors are gone! :(

You can buy colours separately in some shops. I buy my pencils and pastels separately, it's very useful.

Thank you for the advice :) I have a whole set of colours that have been lying in wait for about 4 years...I should do something about that :)

Know the feeling, same with pastels, sell them separately ffs!!
