Sorry, but the skin is way over processed. Too smooth, too plastic. Nice work on the hair. More work on the fingers.

Looks like you took 40 years off her! A little too much like a drawing and too little like retouching to me sorry. The skin is too smooth and the lack of sharpness makes it look like a very nice pencil drawing. The face though is quite good and I really like where you were going with the initial idea.

Just a thought with all the wrinkle ridding and boob raising... her shoulders and general posture are quite hunched. This also adds to the appearance of age.

thanks hehe, many detail is lost when i reduced the quiality to 100kb, so that's why the skin looks so smooth and dont have sharpness
