Wow Ive heard of people sayng skin was like porcelain. This is the first time I know what they meant. Great job on this one Simon. Something going on with the chin area. Only place on her face that has lost its smoothness.

Going back and looking at this again and I love it. The treatment of every part is absolutely beautiful. Id like to see this as a style. Can you do a number of people like this?

I think hair needs more airbrushing, you can almost tell it has some texture so it throws off the balance of the plastic look of the rest of the photo.

Sorry, but I have to say, your advice is like your photos, not very good. Ive yet to see a single impressive image from you. As for the hair here if you look closely at it you will see there is a realistic fakeness to it. While it looks like hair a first glance, looking closely there is an odd but pleasing quality to it. Id say it is spot on. I remember when I was a kid there were cupie dolls. And they had the same look and feel as Simon's portrait. Porcelain looking skin and fake hair.
