That hair. That's some seriously gorgeous hair. I love the part with the tie too. And the way it's shaded just. BEAUTIFUL. And I love how soft her clothes are, or the overall picture. All your pictures are soft but this is softer and it fits! So critique: I think maybe her bangs are too still? I mean, they're flowing, but not as much as the rest. I love her cute little face. But something about her head to shoulders is a bit weird. I think maybe her neck is a little too long? Especially on her tiny little shoulders. And her hand is also a bit too tiny, though that's probably just stylistic choice.
Thank you very much Reaper <3 I appreciate your CC a whole lot! I agree, her hair looks a bit stiff... I'll definitely have to improve in that area of drawing! And yeah her neck is like lol Hmm yeah her hand is a bit small.... darn it! D: Ah well, there's always next time!

It looks more like petals than feathers to me, although it does look nice.
I think the main misleading part is the flower she holds in her hand. The petals of the flower are too close in shape to what we see in her clothes, making it seem that she is a flower girl instead. Bird feathers have a really unique shape actually, very hard to pull off when drawing, so most artists "hint" that something is a feather and then make a shape around to suggest that everything else is a feather. That is a way to trick the mind.
Guess the neck is also too long... but I'd let it slip. The overall however looks nice. And AS ALWAYS I am envious of the way you draw hair.
