    There seems to be very little detail left in the image. The tones are very smooth... TOO smooth. Also the face/body have a different tone, and she has no boobs, which would be fine, but looking at the shadows in your image, the boobs should have a bit more shadow as well.

    It looks ok, but needs to be at like 50%.

        Hello all. I have just joined after many months of viewing the content of this excellent site and thought it was time to post something, get some critique and see where we go from there. Feel free to be as harsh (read honest) as you like - I will only take it constructively. Please see attachment....
