If you put a grey square on a yellow background, you will percieve it as slightly blue because of the unnatural contrast, that same grey can be perciebed yellow if you put it on a blue background. Maybe you wish to go for a more grey tone than blue tone at that right version? It all seems fine to me BUT I would personally still prefer to see some shading in the hair or a definition of what is cloth and what is hair to see the shape more clearly.

I like the new colour, but I'm not so sure about defining my hair's shape.

Here's an attempt...

You may wish to do this with some actual red lines so not just dither to get rid of the 'vagueness' or you may wish to completely leave it out. I did what I thought would look right, but compared to the original I haven't got a clue what looks better.

I think it looks a bit flat. You have some shadow around the eyes, but not much elsewhere. I think bringing back the highlights on the hair (but without the dithering), and darker shadow on the neck, under the nose and on the cheeks might help. :)

ye that's the way to go, though I'm not very sure if I should agree with the changes you made on the face itself.
Good solution in the hair though.

YES.  That's what I like to see.  Nice edit.  I think this is what Adam was talking about in his first post.

anamunumuna... e_o

That looks amazing. I tried it out, but it only became half as good as yours, Arachne.



The top highlights look really wonky.

Still kept the imperfections. As I said before, I think it gives personality. :>

The focus on your top highlights is wrong. They all go to 2 points at an edge, why not let them go to 2 points somewhere in the center, so you see the lines diverging again after passing some point of strongest reflection.

On the right side I think you could've put 2 thinner lines instead of 1 to give a better grasp of the surface.

I think the highlight on our right side should curve back a little at the end, because it kind of looks like it would end up in the negative space right now.
