I like what you did with her wrap, but the contrast on her face and neck is a bit severe for my taste.

Re: please pointout my mistakes

your hilight painting looks very unreal - too strong and too sharp. Also, you've painted hilights where there wouldn't be any. get it in camera.

The nose looks odd, too skinny? something is not right.
overall it looks heavily touched and a tad green/yellow

Nice work!

Though, I can't see why, after doing such good stuff on the clothes and the skin, you just left the hair pretty much the way it was. Missed an opportunity there.

Wouldn't worry about being a tad green/yellow - for an Indian lady I'd say it's probably about right.

Love the look, and the work done to her clothes.

Even though Ant is an ASS I think he has a point with the strong highlights, maybe with a softer brush and then bluring the mask a little to get even softer edges on the highlights?

I can't really give you a detailed critic without seing the full size retouched.

But you are going in the right direction for Amy style.

Good luck

I like everything about it except those highlights on her neck. You have given her a "V" shape on her neck. It is distracting and looks weird. I wouldn't have emphasized the highlights on her collar bones so much. The highlight on the wrist is too strong for my taste as well. But I love what you have done with the nose, the face in general, the jewelry and the wrap. Lovely work.
