Here is this digital-painting of a girl I did recently. As you can see in the artwork, I'm not very good at hair, especially bangs! I could really use some tips on hair or anything else you see that might be off! Thank you very much!

First of all, really liked the angle you choose and the composition as well.

To me it seems that there are some anatomy/general-form errors in the head(especially the nose position and orientation).

I did a quick draw over, hope it helps.
Cheers.

Oh thank you I didn't notice that! Now that you mention it, the nose does look quite off! Will fix the nose and the head.

The framing and composition feel awkward to me. The focus, her face, I squished into one area at a weird place on the page, sorta oddly balanced with the rest of the image...
Like the mood and pose a lot.

To piggyback a little in what people have said composition wise feels that the image doesn't have a specific focus point. Granted that a face always catches your attention but i would reinforce it since you have more stuff that can distract from it (especially that arm across the face). You can do this with values, colors and textures (yeah the hair can really help frame it but since you got that arm there i don't think it's wise to constrain it). But yeah it's digital so feel free to test any ideas :D good luck :)
