It's good for a beginner! The composition is nice—the eye is guided nicely through the center of it.
What software did you use?

Yes indeed I am a beginner, I wanted to start of with something free so I downloaded Paint.Net to give it a shot. It's my first time trying something like this. I didn't want to buy a software that is expensive especially since I'm just starting out. Maybe that would have been a better option ? I'm not too sure but if it was than I'll shall look into that. Oh and thanks ~ :3

Well in digital artwork like this, there is really no substitute for Adobe.

Photoshop is amazing, and it's what most professionals use. It's also what they teach to design students to use in college. There's a bit of a learning curve, but just push through like a dozen tutorials and play around with it, and you'll start to get it.

I recommend starting off with an older version, since you can probably find that for cheap (or free) somewhere online. Otherwise, the new version is only like $10 a month on their website, and it comes with free tutorials.

Alright thanks for the advice I really appreciate this I'll check this out. I don't have much patience for tutorials but I enjoy editing so I'll just have to deal with it. Could you buy a Photoshop program in a store ? Or can you only pay for it online ? (Sorry for the silly questions )

No problem

Just make it a combination between structured exercises and screwing around in the program with funny pictures. Once you understand layers, selections, and brushes, you'll be able to do most of what you want.

Well, they recently changed it. Now, you can only ever rent the software from their website (or buy prepaid time at a software retailer). So you can pay like $10 a month for just Photoshop, and then the program stops working when you cancel your subscription. The cool part is that it constantly updates whenever they add new features to it, which is pretty often. I prefer the new system over having go buy the latest $400 software every couple years.

Because I'm a design student, I pay monthly for their whole suite of software, which is like 12 great programs including Photoshop. That's like $30.

My goodness $400 is rather expensive I guess I would do the $10 a month plan for photoshop only. That's cool that your a design student, that would explain how you know so much haha
