    Looking pretty good, I like it.
    The main thing that jumps out to me is the hand to the right. It looks strange, the thumb seems to far back, at least itís touching the very edge of the glove. All the fingers seem to be the same length to. A reference would help I think. Go to a mirror and put your and on your hip, hay make that entire pose and see what you get.

    Nice piece!
    I agree with PurplePlatypus about the hand on the hip. And she doesn't have boobies, thats what see needs, boobies!

    Sorry for my crappy English

    I think you should first reduce the image size so all of it can fit on the display, it will, then, be much easier to comment on your piece.

    In the future you might consider the motivation behind the character. What kind of person would join the gestapo? From there get a pose that relates a story, right now not much of that is going on. The hips have an angle problem and the hand seems like it is floating not resting.

    Spot on dudes. Thanx everyone for your critique.

    I lacked consideration for the final display size, sizing it smaller makes it look crap. I see a practical reason for manga type features now. I didn't want to chop her body as chow requires full body shots if I'm not mistaken. Buy bigger screens gawdammit!!! LOL!!

    The breasts was something I just didn't focus on intentionally but Yah, boobies are allways better but I didn't want to portray a woman that carry power in her boobs.

    The hands was done without much aftermath

    Not much time was spent of developing background and character I just envisioned chick on powertrip. She also doesn't look in harmony with the dog at all, she's too puffy whereas I wanted a tight tough bitch look and feel.

    Unfortunately a bigger display won't help since the resolution stays the same. My advise is to use the 'save for web' option in PS when you are done painting and to set the image height around 700-800 pixels. No quality loss will occur and no need for cropping, In fact there's a strong possibility that it will look better.

    Anyway, I agree with the above mentioned remarks. To add, I have a strong feeling that the head is way to small in proportion to her body and her upper body is a bit masculine and massive for a woman, again, can't see all of her so it's hard to pin point all the faults.
    Cheers.
