I'm not sure... all I can think of is maybe smear the lines more, like the regular lines like the dress and all. I never heard of that being correct or anything, but I smear everything and find that it works
Or at least I think it does...
And maybe like make the strands of hair more visible on the skin, (with smudging again...)
I dunno. I'm no good at anthros or humans anyway.

Only thing I would suggest is maybe going into more detail with a backround, but I know thats the least of everyon's worries

Personally I think the picture is really good - I myself is learnign human atomany and I'm learnign at the moment in the area of clothes.

The way the character in the picture is posed (looking at the screen directly) the left side of the dress where the breast is it should be a little crinkled where the strap goes down.
I've copped the part of the picture I mean cause I can't explan it. Sorry.

I've also drawn a stupid small copy of what I mean. I can't explan it anyother way. So I don't know if I've acculey helped or I've juts made no sence what so ever.

I really like how the hair turned out, 'tis muy bien. But I agree about maybe working on the background (I can't really tell what all's back there) but other than that, the overall effect is well done. I can't say anything about anatomy, though, since I'm just getting the hang of it myself. I'd get into itty bitty little details that don't matter much, but since you recommended against them, I won't. Good job.

I don't know beans about anatomy when it comes to that kind of subject, but I do know that sometimes you may tend to go overboard on highlights. Try to keep your light source in mind. Really strong highlights should be reserved for the features you want to bring out the most and those parts closest to the light source.

And be careful with the smudge tool. Too much smudging makes things blurry and distorts the color.

Yeah few stray strands of hair might have added one more touch of realism. Maybe use the ol airbrush smudge layer, you know.

Yeah super crazy mad bank hilights, eep that might be partly my fault for showing you that when you were first learning. Since I'm quite guilty of that *is working on it herself*

Hmm the dress fabric does look stiff but I remember when you and I and Christina went to Junk and Foibles and she tried on that 1930-1940 sequinded dress. It was like armour *LOL*

But with that stuff said I think this is one of your best works. I really like how you gave her the high cheek bones. and the sequin shinies...nifty...

*can't see any backgound much at all because of idiotic dark monitor*L*
