Why not put the woman behind the two girls? Wouldn't that eliminate your trouble area?

OK - so I tried leaning the mom a little closer. I think with a little juggling around - you can somehow cover the arm that's in the way.

DJ - that's an interesting idea - I guess you would have to resize the girls first.

That looks real good! I don't know if that's the final version, but if it is I have one criticism. Getting rid of the table and bottle, (IMHO), would make it much better. Other than that, it looks great!

thanks everybody you've all been a great help. It's so great that so may people are willing to give ideas and help when you need it.
That blue thing behind the girls is a person, it would be better if I removed it.
I favor the idea of the mother being included in the hug although putting mum behind the girls is interesting too. The reason I'm leaning towards the hug is my teenage son was looking at it with me and commented that it looked strange that the sister was hugging her sister and not her mum. He thought that hugging mum would be preferable to hugging a sister. So I'm working on two versions and I'll post them as soon as I have something closed to being finished and you may want to comment after all you guys may notice something I don't see.

Since altering the original hug might be alot of work with possible oddities emerging in thier posture you could also consider Mom joining the hug by extending an arm around the sister in back and the other arm coming across in front to clasp the girls. Just another idea to confuse you with Sanda.

Yes it does

Fix the red-eye, fuzz the intersections a bit, and you've pretty much got it.

I do so hate to be the fly in the ointment ( I was convinced myself by the photo ), however the only thing that caught my eye and distracted my attention from the realism, is that the arm is in an anatomicaly impossible posistion. I think a little shortening on the girls right arm ( our left ) might be more convincing.

however other than that its spot on!

You're right Mike, I hadn't noticed that before but her arm couldn't have been that long, she'd be a freak. I can fix that.
