A scrap I've been working on. I just can't seem to make it work. I might pick it up later. The goal was to create something softer than usual.

Adobe CS4

EDIT:: Made some subtle changes

I am good with Characters, So some advice if you care to have it! In my opinion it's not working out cause she looks like a Mature Stalwart Strong type of woman' it seems like something she would never wear... I can hear her screaming inside..., i'd either make a new woman to wear this dress' face more innocent and fragile glossy cheeks and maybe younger...oh and blonde hair

if you can not be bothered to redo that lol. If not then add to this woman the element of white ribbons soft pink or sky blue trim' around her muscles in upper arms below shoulders aligning her breasts. White flowers intwined in her hair and she may need a nice soft silver necklace with a light colored Jewel or a white lace around her neck.

She feels the dress is to simple but in my opinion she looks gorgeous . Good Job.

I see art like this (of your's/in your gallery), and coimpare it in my mind to master pieces I've seen that are hundreds of years old and wonder if tallent like what exists today ever has in history? Granted: Technology, availability of supplies, education, etc etc.. But still. You are rediculously good. I mean, if you where to go back in time a hundred years and paint stuff half this good, we'd be reading about you in college history books. Seriously.

It seems like her neck and head are a little off center from her shoulders and torso? It might be that I'm seeing this in the build up of muscle on the left side (looking at her, not her left) not matching what is on the right, but her head doesn't line up where I would expect it to be... a little too high and to the right.

I see that it was pointed out that her right arm might do better with more contrast and sharpness; I would extend that to her side where it seems like her bodice blends seamlessly into her skirts. I agree that if your included her hands that would help as well. Right now I keep focusing on where her hands hit the skirts.

I love the pastels, and her face is gorgeous. Please don't think that I don't! I hope that you finish this piece. :)

She's perfect. Her shoulders are incredibly gorgeous. Her expression is magnificent. I read you say you cant seem to make it work. If you allow me to say, I think the only thing that could make it better would be to give her balance by making her waist more vertical. It's just a thought. I don't mean to be rude. You're an inspiration =)

She's perfect.. You say you cant seem to make it work.. She has beautiful majestic shoulders and chest.. If i were you, i'd support that with a slightly wider waist. To balance her body, i'd put her waist more vertical. the stripes of her dress are the verticallity reference.
It's just a thought.. I dont mean to be rude or anything.. You're an inspiration. =)
