I like it. Got rid of the hand and the focus from the background to the subject. I would give her face just a little more color, if that suits you. Otherwise, good choices.

A little bit over processed for my tastes, but blurring the background and removing the hand definately improve the picture.

Thanks guys, Suzy actually I felt the same way and did just that, I added more color to her face and Pacf, I was purposely trying to over process it, I was practicing the Mizuno airbrush tutorial. Also I was trying to make her look thiner, I've had a few request for that lately, Go figure lol. Heres another of the same shot just with a glow effect added.

Thanks Magic, The more I look at the glow one, I think it looks to bright in the face. Or is that ok?

I don't like how her back dissapears at a weird angle, it just doesn't look right. Clone in some from her arm tweeked at about a 20 degree angle and you'll be good to go.

I think you did a great job thinning her. Here are my only thoughts... I would darken some of the more drastic highlights on her face to give a more real than plastic look. This will also add to the thinning. And after removing the hand, her back doesn't really look real, I guess because no back is there. I like the glamor effect and the blurring of the background. One more thing, I would try to whiten her teeth just a touch, nothing drastic.

If you crop this photo with an 8x10 ratio keeping all the top, it removes the back issue and creates a more flattering figure.

I also don't like how the back dissapears at an odd angle. It just isn't right for her face type to have that skinny of a torso. Just add a little triangle of shirt and you're good to go. I like the blurring of the bg and the glow filter. The glowing outline on the back of the shirt is slightly distracting though, IMO.

Thank you all so much for your valuable input, I will defintely add some "back" back in. I will also try to darken the highlights in her face and fix the glowing back of her shirt(Didn't even notice that, Thanks for bringing that to my attention). Thanks again for your support and input.

Are you talking about the pupils being wrong? I had to redo her eyes because the original the eys lost their color, so I did what the Muzuno tutorial said to do and yeah, mine didn't come out as natural as his did lol
