Still practicing with photoshop, hair and skintones this time around. I had to use several photos for references. Yanno it's pretty hard making a chick look real without makeup.. especially when all the refs are plastered with it. Ah well, just another one of those experiments that turns out well.

*dances around, completely surprised that there have been no other comments*

This is really, really amazing. I love the skin colors you used. The only suggestion is perhaps her eyebrows could be just slightly darker. Most people have darker hair on eyebrows. But I love the texture to this, and the silkiness of her hair. The background rocks too.

It's awesome, but try not to make her lips so thin, it doesn't look good, lol ^_^

She looks like shes amused, but trying to keep a strait face. Very well done!

I like it...the only thing I can suggest (since you mentioned coloration) is maybe matching the eyebrows to one of the darker strands of hair near the roots...I can't say I know anyone with eyebrows that light and mine are pretty light...so, yeah. But other than that, it's awesome! I love the expression!

Women have naturally full pinkish lips; at least more outlined than men's. Maybe you could try that? Not like I'm a pro, but it should help ya. 10

Looks great. I don't agree with the people who say she should have fuller lips. I've read your Black Tapestries comic, and this portrait captures the whole essence of Lorelei in all its glory. Great job!
