I think what Photo678 is trying to tell you is that the site does not allow guests to view the image. Instead there is a message stating 'mature content filter on'. Presumably they have a block on non-members viewing images.

oh, yeah sorry....guests cant view mature content on DA....sorry for the misunderstanding.....

it looks pretty good though, great job. my only gripe is that above her eyes, but below her eyebrow seems too "rounded". i dont know if that makes any sense....but great job on the background and the color changes in her undies and the handle of the sword

Firstly, not sure whats so 'Xtreme' about it but there you go. I dont think what you've done overall is an improvment to the picture at all. I dont think its flattering to the model or the sword.

From top to bottom.
I like what you did with the background - its a little moodier than the original.
The eyes are nice, though her right eye is a little malformed.
The makeup doesnt suit her colouring or the mood of the picture.
The jaw reshaping is well done, the body reshaping isnt. Appart from the tell-tale signs on her right shoulder, her whole size and shape is malformed. You've left her hips the same width but massively increased the curve of the small of her back and needlessly reduced her shoulders and arms, making her head look too big.
The breast reshaping is good but you should pay attention to the skin too, it could do with some mroe work.
Not sure why you changed the colour of the handle, I dont think its an improvement. Ditto with her knickers - I would have removed them or covered them up rather than make them white.

Nice critic

NancyJ:

I think you're right about the things you noticed, most of them I didn't notice my self.

I agree that the eye is a little malformed.

I agree with your "makeup comments" and with the hips shape being malformed. But I don't agree with you in other things.

I do think its flattering to the model.

I changed the colour of the handle to match her eyes.

I didn't cover up her knickers because I think THEY ARE SEXY, just thought the color didn't have anything to do with the image.

and last... I don't see anything wrong with her breast skin. May be you could tell me where to look.

To be honest (and "hard" as you requested), I'd have to say I don't care for the retouch. Although it is meant to be extreme, I don't think it's extreme is a good way (I agree with many of the points NancyJ mentioned. )
The person looks totally different, but not in a better way. I think the original is more attractive. The body reshaping is not done well, and there are obvious signs of "work". The same is true for the shadowing. Probably due to severe contrast adjustments, the highlights on the image are now glaring hot spots.

It might be helpful, for those who post requests for critiques, to offer a bit of information about what they are trying/hoping to achieve with their rework, and why they posted the image in a particular forum.
