    Sealegs Mary - focal point issues

    Hello, I'm trying to get this done, but the more I have to face the big picture, I realize that I would LIKE to have her face/arm/sword area be the focal point, instead of the huge window. I'm really trying to make this work as best as possible ~

    Should I move the window? Put curtains? More contrast in the shading on her face? Or in the end not put a lot of detail in everything else?

    Please help x__x;;

    I suggest moving the window behind her and use it to frame her in a fancy way... if you were working with layers, this should be pretty easy...
    Nice job rendering the face btw.

    My suggestion is to find a way to make her contrast more with the back ground and the window contrast less with everything else. I agree with softocean and think that moving the window just behind her would be an easy and nice way to make her pop. And as soft said, you could easily have it frame nicely too.
