    Thanks for the comments for everyone.
    Based on the comments (and that I really didn't know what I'm doing), I've redone the picture to be completely different. It will be kinda mecha-Mucha-fairy or something.

    amazing work so far, here's some crits

    curly: I really like the dress and that you have her wings moving. Its hard to tell wheather or not shes on the ground or if she's hovering in the air. Between the two i'd like to see her hovering, maybe make her toes/feet pointed down to make that more obvious.

    hungryan: I like where this is going so far, espectially the outfit, keep going!

    KuGu: I like the perspective you have going and your drawing style. The part that bothers me is the sugar cube, it looks like its too big for it to stay in her hand at that angle, it looks like it would fall. I'd consider turning her hand around so the cube is in front of her hand.

    Zarquino: I love how the glass looks but right now its overpowering, the glass has become the focus when you want the character to be. Maybe put in a differnet pose thats not so stiff.

    conceptbloke: I like the variety but maybe also try something that's not so head on, like have her viewed leaning or sitting on the sides of the O (not sure if that's a bottle?)

    petitemistress: I love the ladybug idea! Migsta already gave a great example for her face, another thing you can do for the future is to buy a small mirror. You can use your facial expression as a reference for getting the look right. You don't have to copy your face but it helps to give an idea of what shape the mouth makes and what other muscles are affected.

    MONGOSMASH!: You did a great job at rendering her figure but i'm not quite sure what you're going for. Her pose is looking more pornlike then cheerleader.

    Migsta: Its a little desturbing but looks so cool! I love the neon green. I don't have any suggestions, it looks done.

    Max Martelli: the rendering looks amazing, that kiss looks perfect.

    NoShot: I like your flapper idea, so far its looking great. Since she's so dressed up maybe put her in heels, something a flapper would wear.

    rinjii: I like the pose but I think you should get her hands/face/feet drawn in before dealing with any shading. Spend as long as you need to get those accurate first. I know they are the hardest (they are for me too) but it will show once the work in complete.

    scottmcd: i love that you added in the background, when i saw the first sketch i though oh no she looks like she's on the toilet but she really is! I think where you need most work is on her joints, look at reference for areas where she is bending (elbow, hips, knees).

    Ostrander: very creepy i like it! I really like that you put in some hidden skulls into the swirling liquid, I'd bring that out a bit more, its almost too subtle. Unless those were happy accidents lol but i still like it.

    Aurther 'Two Sheds': this is looking great, love the spoon. I'd add in some more contrast in her skin and highlights from other sources like orange from the spoon or some red from the background to make it pop.

    JailHouseRock2: very cute! lol and origional, i like it. I think you should thicken her left leg to match the other one, it looks like its going to snap off.

    Jessibean: awesome work, I added your website link to my list of favorite artists!

    AvisNocturna: love this one, hair, face and clothes looks amazing, can't wait to see it finished.

    blau: the folds in her clothes look nice but her right shoulder has a strang indent in it that should be softened.

    Tydal: I think you're making progress but I'd suggest to not even do any shading untill you have the sketch finished and accurate. Find a referece of a pose you like first rather then trying to make one up, use pictures of nude models when you can so you can see the structure of the body.

    Garth Cochrane: I like this idea of two fairies, very cool and shows a range of your skill

    Chronoperates: I love how you did the wings and the overall look but her butt needs some work, It shouldn't be that circular, what I mean is it shouldn't curve inward so much before attaching to her thigh

    gunnarsson: I really like this idea especially the look of the skin on the bottom picture, top left face

    Missile: very cute idea, I'd be careful of the bottom of her dress, they are looking like tenticles, if you want it to be flowing into liquid you'd have to spread them out so they don't look so think or if you want it to just be a flowy dress then find a reference for a dress in the wind.

    davidmcleod: love it! lol

    Nightblue: I really like what's going on with her head

    Ronpower: I like the pose but i'm distracted by the hole between her thighs, to me if feels like she isn't skinny enough that she should have a gap there.

    agenda-b: I hope we can see an update, its a nice sketch!

    Lt. Action: you've got a very unique style, keep going with it. I really like that's she leaning on the spoon and I hope you keep in the wings, i like them.

    MJ Alcazar: I like the look on her face and her feet are very well drawn. I'd like to see some more of her right arm, the pose she's in would be very uncomfortable.

    Jefita: very cute!! love the belt buckle!

    AmbientSounds: I agree that you should add more of a background. I like her hair and the metalic look that you gave to the highlights on her skin.

    telamon: I like the concept, but i'd work on her hip, it looks too big.

    may do some more later.

    Just a quick update! Glass is hard to paint... I think I'm stuck at that "what to do with the white background"-phase again. Crits very welcome!

    Arthemis- WOAH i love it! the bottle/dress is too cool, i love the way you did that personally i like that blank background, though.

    Amber- gah, no kidding. totally didn't see your post until after i submitted mine- my bad. i do agree with you though- no idea why this is time i went backwards and did shading first, then detailing. the only thing bugging me is her right hand- that's the hardest thing right now to tweak. when i get back into photoshop i'll take my time to fix it up so that it doesn't look so half-assed

    UPDATE:

    Desperately trying to save my fairy now, although there's no chance really ... Atleast I've altered her arm slightly. Btw I know the lighting is completely random atm since I've just splattered colours on a multiply layer, but I'll try and do my best to figure it out!

    Amber Alexander: Your right, I just got too carried away as usual. I did actually use a reference, guess I just didn't do a very good job interpretting it...but i've come too far to go back now!!! (at least this time, but good to keep in mind for next time ).

    Avis: Hope the shoulders are a little better..eek!

    Have had no time for this one unfortunately. Only a quick sketch/idea at the moment but i thought why not post it even if it doesnt go any furthur or i change my mind.
    This is a drunken Absynthe Fairy after a heavy night of "musing". In tow is her hot date.
    Crits are encouraged.

    update... not quite done yet. Am soooo envious of Jessibean's Mucha-esque fairy.

    AvisNocturna- I'm really liking yours, too. The shoes are a bit clunky, tho?

    Thanks for the crits, I was painting in the wee hours of the morning so having some fresh eyes on it helped.

    I fixed the slope of the butt to the thigh and I thickened up her lower legs a bit, as well as popping the spoon wing back behind the rim of the glass.
