    Looks like it needs attention to the sternocleidomastoid muscles in particular.

    Lol, it really wasn't rude, just a way of saying get some references in a funny way.

    But when you say "can someone help me with the neck area? I have no idea what i am doing." most everyone is going to say use reference.

    My first conclusion will be that you aren't using reference or that you aren't using it properly because you said, you dont know what you are doing, therefore I think you are trying to do this out of your head.

    In all seriousness though...you do need to put more attention to the sternocleidomastoid as suggested above. Right now she doesnt have any, you just gotta be subtle with it. Second, her jaw is WAY too narrow compared to the top of the head. The base of the neck doesnt taper inward like you have it either. Also, that is not what the nose looks like at that angle, you need to pay attention to that as well. Okay, this is a real link, no stupid jokes. It's great for female busts. I also recommend anyone else to use it as well. http://davidbenoliel.deviantart.com/gallery/

    This angle of the head is a Biotch to do, to say the least.

    thanks a lot havoc reed!

    okay, so making the jaw wider, is it alright if i come to your inbox later with the revised version of her jaw?
    and i was told on facebook and from others to not do that part of the neck, but i see i should be doing that part, only making it slight and light?
    and make her neck wider at the base, gotcha.
    i was using this reference for the nose: http://i1049.photobucket.com/albums/...pse16ac754.png

    also, i was using references, but not many of them were making much sense.

    Just keep posting your updates in here.

    In your reference that you linked, you can see that muscle. its a very subtle change in values. Look at her.....I guess the esophagus/throat area and then the sternocleidomastoid kind of comes down along the sides and meets in the middle. the muscle attaches from the sternum, and travels to the outside of the neck to the mastoid which is just behind the ear, which is where the muscle gets its name from.

    it's a little better but the neck still isn't wide enough overall. Look at your reference image and pay close attention to where the neck attaches to the head. When the head goes back that far, It doesn't hide behind the jawline, it attaches just below the ear. Also, don't completely darken the neck in the middle and below the chin, light still hits it and bounces around on there.

    After that, you have several other things that need fixing. The face structure is off for that angle. Both of the pieces on her head are not in perspective with her head. We shouldn't see them straight on like that. The arm muscles need toning down.
