Default Cartoon or HDR? (18+ nudity warning)

Forget about the real image for now as I just got hold of Topaz
Which filter effect do you prefer? Thanks

Out of the two I would go for #2.
Curious to what the original image looked like though.

All the skin on the first one looks like an airbrushed job done with poor masking skills. The second one is photographic and well done. Both would make good illustrations for different reasons.
I thought it would make a good book cover.

Sorry NHL I don't like either of them. If I had to pick #2. #1 looks like ceramic with too much NR applied.

I can see why no one like the 1st rendition as all the details are lost when resized to fit this small web page...

Here's a crop of the 1st image, or in larger print it looks better:

I can see the cartoon look in her face and especially the eye.

Why look at a cartoon of a beautiful nude woman when you can see the real thing?

NHL, I hate that people will look, and if they don't like, they say nothing. I won't do that. I like Bynx's approach, but I have to go with Mike on these. Beautiful girl, and you do some great stuff, but to me, this isn't it. Sorry, at least this time.

This is interesting so far. My background is graphic arts and I can appreciate these two images as artwork. Im guessing that the other two guys dont have that background and are looking at them as photographs. Seeing the blowup of 1 allows me to see the details I kinda missed on the original. I really like the job you did on the hair. 2 has a nice grungy look to the skin. What plugins are you using here.
