    Wow... great pic. I might be biased to a hot girl in blue *ahem*

    If you pulled my leg to critique i would just say her breasts seem too high.. not by much but just a lil. otherwise.. wow great piece. Wish it was desktop size.

    Its really good, however there's a problem with the legs. I suppose you're trying to say that she broke apart from her legs and that's why they dont align, but it took me a minute of looking to figure that out. Initially I thought the legs just were misplaced. Also much of the bottom seems unneccesary, if you cropped it a bit it'd make everything tighter and(imo) a bit better.
    PS I disagree about the breasts, she's floating in the water so they're right where they should be.

    I think that brests are not the problem, but the shoulder wich is extremly pulled back.
    Great pic, anyway

    I can't be bothered to explain how you're wrong. Rest assured you are though. Fish dont "float" either, but they still look like they do.

    I think what Ranwyh is stating is that breasts wont sag as much in the water due to the weightlessnes.

    The left shoulder looks a little disloacated or something, but it's still nice. I liek the motion of the water, you've shown that particularly well.

    I have to admit at first I was just like "Boobies"!

    After more looking I realized that the way the neck is craned towards the body doesn't seem right. That and her right side (our left) isn't correct. I think it comes out a little too far and her right shoulder is too long.

    Nice piece though! I like the color and the face.

    wow how did you do the skirt-like thing and the things on her wrist? if every part was so skillfully executed this would be a 5-star pic..

    the main problem is that your tecnique is inconsistent... her body is sketchy, her face is almost colored linework, and the skirt is almost photo-real.. its better to stay consistent in all areas of the piece, and not to get lazy in one area because you like some other part a lot more.. the water swirls dont seem to wrap around her either.. at the perspective we're seeing her, you get a sort of eliptical motion around her

    The pose of the figure and her marine-like colour blends across her body are beautiful, but it is obvious that the body, skirt and swirling water are rendered differently. I think it would blend together more effectively if the skirt had some slight motion blur, liquify or smudge effects applied to it in the direction of the movement. Also, the swirling water could use a hilight somewhere, like a stream of lit bubbles. Great job!

    dadamafia - thanks mate for the comments,i've made alil changes on the whirling water.hopefully it looks better now
    mainloop - thanks u for the precious comments,yeah,lol,i didnt actually realised the inconsistency of the approach until u mention it,i've made some alteration to it as to blends the rendition all together,yeah about the skirt like thingy,its indeed the part i spend most time in,i have re did the skirt for several times until i got this final results,there are a few layers for the skirt,overlayed one layer ontop the original and screen another layer with slight tone down on the opacity and motionblured it in the layer it self.various reference of marine life used

    highfive - thanks mate,i've made some changes according to ur comments about the whriling water as well as the motionblur for the skirt.

    thanks agains for all the comments to keep me improving my work
