Hmm... I quite like this. However, like Amber said, I think the hands and feet are a bit small compared to the body.
Good work otherwise! :)

:iconimhappyplz: ok I've never properly critiqued someone before but I'll just use the knowledge I know, now sorry if it seems harsh, but it's good stuff to keep in mind. :thumbsup:

Right let's work from top to bottom. The head shape is good - you also got Vaporeon's anatomy correct, though so they're in proportion, maybe the head fins would be slightly bigger? I don't know, that's more personal preference-.
The waist is good and the chest area isn't gravity defying. The hands are probably slightly small, but hands have never been easy for anyone, leg shape is another difficult thing to master, maybe looking at basic female anatomy may help. The shins probably wouldn't make that shape, it's very unnatural so it can't lead smoothly into the ankles, however the fins around the ankles may have thrown you off and could've distracted you from that point, I'm not sure. You have got the shading in the correct places however it's not very smooth, I know paint is quite difficult to get smooth shading with but cell shading -if you don't know what that is search it- comes in handy with paint, also very, very gradually darkening the colour and layering it gives it a much more smooth effect. You have given the skin a shiny effect however I don't think the highlights -where light would be hitting- would have shadow on it aswell. I can understand if it was a paler colour in the light, but because it is white it shows something it very smooth and wouldn't have shading underneathe it. Otherwise, good work :thumbs up :la:
