Thanks for the comments ransick.

Here she is at her current state. I would like to refine the head some more then add eyes, eyebrows, eyelashes, hair, then begin the long process of learning how to texture her. Before I go back to the head, any last suggestions on her body? Please be as brutal as you can be, but of course just because something is suggested does not mean I will defiantly do it since I know I could refine this forever but I want to keep marching forward. But I will give a couple more hours to refining parts of her body if some good points are brought up. So get our your red wacom pens and please be honest. And finally thank you all for your interest in my work, your views, suggestions, and encouragement have kept me going and looking forward to more modeling. Cheers!!

Keep up the good work mate

Very nice model so far contrast! There are a few things I would suggest though. If she is supposed to be a more stocky, older kind of woman, I would suggest widening the thighs and calves a little, since her top part seems too "heavy" for her legs to support her...it almost seems like she would topple over, lol! I guess this is since her upper body seems more like that of an older woman, and her lower half seems more like that of a woman in her teens or 20's, making it have that off-balanced look. Or, if you are going for more of a youthful, thin look, I would suggest maybe not making the upper part of her body so wide at the shoulder area, then her body would be more in balance, and bringing the breasts closer together. It just all depends on what kind of look you are going for. But maybe it is just me...I dunno.

Thank you Peltra and CGMaya84 for your suggestions, they are both correct. I redid the legs and hips a bit, I gave them more curves, right now her legs seem like two thin sticks with no muscles.

I was originally going for a young look, perhaps I should take a look at her shoulders as well. It's nice to have given it a break for a bit and come back, all of the faults are becoming more obvious for me, and also thanks to your comments, I will upload a picture when I get home and get on the internet.

(on a side note: my wife and I were watching the rain out our window while we layed on the couch, and a bolt a lightning struck a metal fence that is 10 feet from our window, and we were 10 feet from the window. It was amazing!! So lound and bright, and thick as well! We both screamed then couldn't believe what we saw. But unfortunitly our router got fried and we are waiting for a new one in the mail, it might be a week or so until I am back online like before)

Good question ransick, I am going for a good looking female in her 20's. I am not trying to make her look unbeliveable with an ultra thin waist, etc. But I am trying to make her the correct proportions to her chest. Using the original images as reference. But I also think that she is sucking in her stomach in the pictures, but I do like the flatter stomach. So to make the long answer short, I am trying to make a "hot babe" like you are.

It's been a while since I have looked at my model and I have decided that the head is far to masculine. I photoshoped some eyes on "her" and also some hair, but she looked like a guy wearing a woman's wig. So I was wonderig if anyone can give some suggestions on how to make my model look less like a dude and more like a dudettte. Below is the image with the eyes, I left out the one with the hair since that is just to funny.

ones again....use refs...if you allready use them than tose them away cause they don't really do too good...

I was playing the other day with my model and didn't used any refs or whatso ever because I thought that I wanted to ajust it to my own flavor... but there was something that didn't feel like it was a womenshead... so I added refs and woooooooooooow what was I off on the head... I needed to rebuild allmost the whole head...

...what Im trying to say is that I can see that your're quite off on your head but you could change it with some good refs....and as I said at my last post....I'll be happy to give it to ya!

I made some major changes to the face and tried to make her look more femine. Any suggestions would be helpful, soon I plan to start texturing. Thanks for looking.
