Thank you, I thought it'd add to the character's innocence to make it look like he was carelessly tramping over the camera like a giant. :D

Beautiful green colours! And the perspective is amazing - it's like watching the world from a baby penguin's eyes :aww:

i really like this so much omg!!
it's a pretty calm picture, and that's always great to have. ^u^
i do think though, that you could have a wider contrast in colors. I understand it's a forest, but maybe some different colored leaves on the trees + ground, etc.
the perspective itself is quite tricky!!! but i think you did pretty good on it, and can only see a few errors with it (the chracter's arms could have some work..)
be sure to pick a light source! i understand the sun's rays go everywhere, but never is there not a specified side where light doesnt hit...
in this case it seems more like your light source is in front of the character, but the trees make me think it could be the other way around!!! just something to 
keep in mind. good luck improving- still looks amazing!! <3

All fair points. I do need to work on my color distribution, yeah, although here I wanted the character to somewhat fit into the environment. (Could've made his green a little yellower, though.) And yeah, I intended the light source to be roughly above him, but in that case the sky should've had more light near that area.

I like how you got that perspective going, it is a hard angle to work it, but most proportions seem fine, and the colours used are very good to. You have a nice style.
Though, I think you need improvement in: Clean Lines, a bit on proportions, contrast of colours.
- On clean lines I do not only mean that they should be nice to see and clean but also to vary the thickness of it, It gives a nice shading efect and also helps with proportions.
- On proportions most are fine, but the right arm is a bit weird and I also think that the right leg should be more bent after the knee. What will definetly help you is skeching enough at first to ensure the anatomy and proportions are ok, and be patient, with practice, it comes!
- With Contrast of colours I mean that if the bear is green and brown, the landscape should not be the same, or at least in a more distinguishable tone, to make the bear´s size empazhise.

Be patient, practice and never give up! Nice Work!

Thank you for your detailed response, and a few questions/notes:
- Where in particular do you think it needs extra line thickness? My tablet is not pressure-sensitive, so I never know where to do it.
- Where do the lines need to be cleaner? The only messy ones I see are on the sides of the pine-tree, which was (semi-?)intentional to evoke the needles.
- The color scheme was intentional; I wanted Chip to fit in and evoke being part of nature.

Line thickness: My opinion is that you should try to vary it by looking at how the light is in the area, when there is a sudden difference of light. Also when there is a joint between 2 lines or more. It adds a lot of fluidity and make the artwork more pleasant to look at. Also affects trees and the backgroung. For example, the end of the line from the right of the left leg should be less thicker.
( What a jiggsaw CURSE YOU! )

Well in my opinion, the lines on the ears are a bit messy, also, if you look at the lines on the right arm, below, dunno if it is on purpose (If so, it is an anatomy issue and i apologise) or not but the line do not connect. Moreover, to my point of view, many of the lines seem a bit trembly (again, sorry if it is on purpose).

If you do like the colors then it is ok, I´m just saying it would give more impact, but if it is not what it is looked for then all right all  right :happybounce: :happybounce: :happybounce:

It's a huge teddy bear! (Sorry......) 
I love how the outlines and simplicity makes it look like a cartoon series~ 

Well.... Um, there's one thing I'm a but confused about. Is it meant to be fluffy?

I'm not quite sure; I couldn't really tell from the design reference Cheeto gave me. Are there particular areas that could use more fluff, though?

And thanks; I'm trying to improve my digital painting style but for now, the style I work best with is cartoony. :D

That looks great! I like the shading and how the colors blend when they touch!

You'd have to credit Cheeto for that; my OCs tend to use pretty little color blending. I can take credit for the blur effect up close, though. :D
