I'm not going to critique the hair or face, but rather the body:


Try adding more shapeliness to the different parts of the body - it'll make the joints feel more like the connections between limbs, help distinguish the shoulder from the arm, the arm from the fore-arm, the wrist from the hand etc. I would suggest referring to an anatomical diagram for muscle and bone placement. I can get back to you if you have more difficulties.

Hope this helps.  :y:

I like path you took, but don't want to be overly realistic

No need to throw the baby out with the bathwater. Chris2Balls' version was much more realistic (and body realism is a worthy objective) but I know you're going for a more idealistic style. However, look at this:



It kinda looks like a man and a woman when you don't have any sexual characteristics to give you cues.



This is my attempt at blending Chris2Balls' arms and legs into your torso. I think the result is more appealing; the arms and legs are a little more shapely.

I also added a shadow on the face from the hair. If you play it right you can get a bit of 3D information into face shadows. And a little shadow definitely makes a female face more appealing to me, YMMV.

You could probably go darker still with the face shadow, looking at it now I've been a bit light-handed.
