    It depends, If you want your painting to look exactly like the photo ref, I guess the eyedropper is the way to go. But if you want to get better I suggest doing it manually. As it is now i think it needs to get slightly darker and more saturated (but be careful and don't overdo it).

    Practicing faces, learning to observe colour, practicing rendering in PS, pracitcing rendering hair, etc etc... it's a study, same reason we copy anatomy exactly to learn it.

    One thing you should be aware of is subsurface scattering. When things are translucent, light enters and bouncing around before bouncing out again. This causes shadows, particularly core shadows, to become more saturated then parts in the light. Right now it looks (on the most part) that used a darker color of the skin for shadows without watching the saturation. This is particularly obvious under the lower lip and under her left cheek.

    Wow, thaks Zypher! I was wondering about that a lot why shadows on faces would be more saturated. Didn't seem logical.
    And Yinteck: apart from the saturation issue I think it's preety good on the proportions. Just her pinky is real round at the top and too big.
    Her lips could use some more glow and watch out for the subtle colour differences in the eye. The "white of the eye is usually some different sorts of partially quite dark grey.
    As for the eyedropping, what I do is that I at first try to pick the color myself, trying to get as close to what I think I see and then check back with the eyedropper. That's often surprising and I think it corrects some general misconceptions, as with the desaturated shadows.
    Though I also didn't know why it was that way, just that it was. So, thanks again to Zypher.

    Very interesting. Is there a tutorial somewhere around here that explains that bouncing light and saturated shadows you speak of? I would like to see some examples in pictures Even if there just photos.

    Thanks again Zypher. I should read the critique center more often. There's a lot of valuable information in here. Even if there's so little feedback.

    looking really good, but unfortunately those pics are touched up so much before they hit the market that it makes people look like dolls. Also, the color on the original is off, be it by a filter or by camera exposure- I have yet to meet a "yellow" person, or even a glowing orange one. Here I made achange to the color of the pic, normalized it a bit and you can see more detail come up.
    I also pointed out some minor details you need to work out that when corrected will give the image that much more of a punch.

    hope that helps
