    Nice! The top of the hair looks a bit like a wig though. She could use some more back of the head, and make sure the strands of hair starts on the scalp, not above it. Perhaps her neck is a bit wide as well. Cheers!

    cool...but honestly I think you should lose this cigarette, or put it at a different angle. It's kind of distracting and takes away from the feel of the piece. If she's a bad ass and a smoker, then she might have it from the side of her mouth or something, but it just looks off. nice render though and great detail!

    Also I feel there should be a little more shadow on the exposed leg, just in the top right area, b/c that dress is pulled up, yet still in front of the leg, making the shadow appear. Just a thought. again nice work.

    It's great, but *why* is she lifting up her skirt? If she had a gun holster down at her boot or strapped to her leg, the whole image would make perfect sense--as it is the skin just feels gratuitous.

    Great painting.

    The cigarette for me is like one thing too many too. She doesn't need pigtails, and a gun, and glasses, and an ipod, AND a cigarette. I like the hair tho--it doesnt strike me as a wig.

    I also agree there should b more reason for pulling up the dress. You could just put the dress down and her hand is down by her side. But I have another idea besides the holster which was also a good idea tho; maybe the wind is blowing her dress and shes holding it down, but shes just too cool to be leaning over and holding it all the way down.

    I think it's fantastic and people are being overly critical. Depending on the printed size of the cover- assuming it's smaller than the preview you have here- everything will look tight-even the hair. That said the only thing to improve in my oppinion is the finish quality of the hair-BUT I kinda like the rugged look it has now, a little messed up-maybe a little dirty, like her life has been interupted and been through an adventure.
    Cheers
    I like it.
