I postponed this one long enough. Finally decided to give my ego a good whooping and look for some help. Here`s the deal - this is my first, shall we say, "big" project, and I really want to make the best out of it. It`s a promo-poster for my faculty s fashion show, and it will hang all around the city. Not important for this thread, so...whatever. The first image is a layout I arranged with my professor, and the second one is the real thing. I spent ages on rendering the facial features, but - something is off. Something just dosen`t look right, even when I`m looking with a fresh pair of eyes. I looked at numerous references, Loomis books on facial proportions, everything - without results. So, to sum it up -
Are her facial features in order, and what would you change?
How far off is the shape of her skull?
What would be the width of her neck?
I know these are rookie questions, but...I`m starting to panic, and when I do that, I loose the last remaining shred of common sense and logic. Please, bear with me.
