Normally I do not comment on these types of images because I simply do not know what I am talking about. Having said that, I just wanted to say these are pretty dang good. I will let the pro's offer any critique if there is any. well done.

A very nice job from a single light. A couple of things, not only the head but the hands in the first are cropped. In the 2nd you have her right arm closer to the light than her face, this is making that arm the first point of interest so a bit of a burn could help that.

Nice. Really showing the beauty of the girl.
Hair crop on #1, why did you cut it? And hair job in the right pic could be better too.
But nice to see.

I believe Arty used two SB-800s, one remote, and one command flash even though this command flash didn't contribute much to the lighting

The pictures are already great, but I believe he can improve the lighting on the lower half of the model by moving his SB-800 command flash to augment the left remote flash by filling-in the lower part of the model, and use his D200 built-in flash as the commander instead...

I was guessing that he was using it only to trigger so not outputting anything to add to lighting, couldn't see any catchlight from the on camera just the softbox but could be wrong as the size of the photo is pretty small.

It's exactly my same opinion Mark, hence my suggestion to use the camera's built-in flash as the commander instead and to put the 2nd SB-800 to better use...

Even with the model sitting down the inverse square law is taking its effect so his current setup is limited only to portrait which may be fine
