breast's are a little too pointy. And you might want to make the character a little bit more thick. Right now she is too skinny around the sides. And also around the butt, its too curvey and thin.

But nice work so far.

A good start, i'd say you have a bit to much geometry at the moment. If you delete a few loops in the legs and abdomen area it should make shaping alot easier for you. Keep the updates coming.

Thanks for the comments Peltra & Lonepig.

A little update. Been working most on the legs, torso and feet. The abs are just a test so dont mind them too much. Having some problems with the feet to get the overall shape good. Can't find any good reference images, anyone? The hand looks like sh*t but I haven't spend many minutes on it.

Hey DJ

Yeah I would have to agree, dont put to much detail in right now, as things like nipples and abs can wait, I think shes a little flat all round at the moment, build the form up a bit more then get into the 'goods' later. Best of luck...

Looking better than it was before. However, I think that her shoulders and hips need to be wider and broader, since women tend to have an "hour-glass figure" where it is wider at the shoulder and hip area, but it slims at the waist-I just thought I'd point that out. :p Also, the arms need some progress-they need to be longer and broader, for they seem a little too short and thin right now. Keep up the good progress though, DJbLAZER! Looking forward to seeing more of your WIP!

Strange that, when i show my female models to my girlfriend and my female friends they always seem to say the same thing. Hips broader, shoulders wider, belly rounder, ass bigger. I think its us males seeing the world through tainted glasses (tainted with lust, love, beer or just outright stupidity- take ur pick) A fatal flaw when it comes to 3d modelling

But on a serious note shes still looking a little flat. Grab that scale tool and drag it along the z-axis a bit. Just a touch mind. Looking forawrd to seeing the end of this after ur last model. (Check his avatar, its all DJ's!)
