Aw, I saw you posted this on tumblr but I didn't see you put it here! It's gorgeous, as always! I feel like Lily's head looks a little too far away from her body, like she has a really long neck... but this is probably the best drawing of their faces I've ever seen

Yay! Back to spam you with more uber long comments because I have been in lacking of artwork to do so with yay!
ANYWAY! I don know why you don't like the colors honestly. Sometimes simpler coloring looks very nice and this certainly does I really, really, REALLY love your muscle structure, especially on James, it's really, really, really spot on which is fantasmic! I really love the human body, it's so interesting! The folds in the um...blanket? Whatever it is, looks nice although I can't tell if there's a dip in the bed or not? It kind of looks like there's a giant hole where Lily and James' arms are. Just something to look at.
As far as anatomy goes, still looks very nice, James' ear could be moved down just a tad or you can move his face up. Remember tip of the ear matches with the eye and it ends at the end of the nose, no matter what the dimension or direction the face is looking in. Your face. Also, when drawing Lily's ring, try to make it look more... dimensional. It kind of looks like it was tattooed into her skin rather than like a ring. A small fix but nothing that's gonna ruin the drawing.
Whew, long post is long although not as long as my other one. All in all though, it's still a job well done. Still waiting for a coloring tut :K
This is a lot less colorful than your usual work, but that doesn't mean it doesn't work. It just doesn't work with the title as well. I'd expect this color scheme to show up in the really early morning before the sun quite has risen.
