Very nice overall. Her nose seems a little too wide in the mid section, you could try straightening it a bit.

Re: First Post.

I think you've made the arm in the foreground a little too thin. Also, I'd whiten the teeth slightly.

Hi Pat,

I think that if you are going to get rid of the lines under the eyes, then you would have to do the same with the lines at the sides of her mouth (smile). It doesn't look natural/balanced.

I've done a simple rendition. Might have done a little bit too much smoothing

Thanks for the suggestions, I'm going to edit it a little more tomorrow. I've made Saturday my jam on stuff to build a portfolio day.

Hey Pat, Great Work!

I agree with Alison, I think that getting rid of the lines under the eyes completely feels a little unnatural. Also, there seems to be a little bit of loose hair at the top of her forehead that is just a little bit distracting. Great job over all, and keep up the good work!
