In addition to Kiska's excellent comments, it seems to me that the skin is a little too smooth, too plastic.
I'm affraid i am going to have to disagree with you DUV, i think the skin texture is spot on. Any adjustment either way would harm the overall effect.

One thing i will point out though is the fingernails. There seems to be some excess red on th edges of the nails, might be a good idea to just clean this up a little.

I think the picture is SUPERB !!

Depends whether you want your subject to look like a woman or a china doll.

Well i dont think his subject looks like a china doll ?

In appearance, the skin would maybe be guilty of a little bit too much makeup and yes that qualifies as a little too smooth perhaps but I but i think he has done a terrific job with the glamour work, i just dont see the resemblance to fine china porcelain ?

I think the important thing is that Lostboy has taken all suggestions above and by his own admission has improved his picture and capabilities.

Cheers
Dave

Point of view I guess Axle, my comment is not a criticism of Lostboy's effort or your opinion. I'm not a lover of the "Glamour" look, I have never yet met a woman who's skin was that flawless, and I think it raises unacheivable expectations. Dave, I agree with you Lostboy was looking for criticism and help, and has received both, and as you say learnt in the process.
