    I want to see if she is recognizable. Please tell me who do you think she is. (I think it looks like her, but my wife says not that much.)

    It is a stretch, but I would go with Sun from Lost.

    Bai Fan, indeed it is, so it doesn't look that much like her?

    I can kind of read it through the expression in her eyes/brows, but the problems in the rendering take away from the likeness. For an example, the far side of her face is reading as closer to the near side, so the entire left side of her face (our right) feels flat and awkward.

    Well, that and Jin would never let her wear a neckline that low. Trying to push the likeness a bit more, why not change the vneck to one with buttons at the top and just leave one unbuttoned. Bring some of the character into the art.

    ...

    Unless you were going for the actor and not the character.

    I would say your biggest problem is needing to keep the face in perspective. In the first piece, the eyes and mouth feel like they are aimed right at us, while the nose and head are slightly turned. In the 2nd one the nose and mouth feel like they are at a skewed angle... and I don't think that resembles her nose.

    Again, I can kind of see it... but the likeness isn't completely there yet.

    I think the likeness is a lot better, but you are losing the caricature feel to the piece. And hey, this is my 4th crit of the piece, so tongue right back at you.

    Yeah, although I just deleted them (last night) from my signature and replaced it with my blog, so I have no idea where they would be anymore.

    I haven't really updated them in a long while so I thought it would be better to drop them.

    I instantly recognized her. The second one you doesnt look like her at all though, so go with the first!

    You switched out the original image in the first post to the latest version. Since we can't see the original, I think byakko is assuming that the file attached to the first post is the first attempt at the likeness. Maybe put all likeness in one image so we can see the progression.
