Aw, no short hair
Naw jk, it looks pretty damn good
I vote yes to the pigtails. And she needs thigh-high boots, of course.
The most important opinion has been noted. Now, I was indeed thinking high boots, but from a *ahem* "realism" perspective I was thinking knee high lol.
(My statement stays even though it is redundant due to your massive ninja edits )
I also had a cool idea to animate the pony tails instead of drawing frames... they could be made of some "hair" sprites that would bob and dangle about the place as she (to quote an awesome quote) "flies around like a coat hanger in a clothes dryer".
I'm pretty open to suggestion for colour scheme as well... I'd like to try and keep her fairly neutral so she doesn't look like a clown, but make her stand out enough from the backgrounds (which will primarily be greys and browns etc) so you can see where you are going. If anyone can be assed coluring her in, be my guest... credit will be given for awesomeness in scheme decoration.
