Thanks to helpful comments by *Amazonofexeter and =sombrefeline about the face and neck - I've repainted them (nothing else - I tried a couple of things but didn't keep them)

Ah, thought I recognised the texture on the background :)

Is that an "oh I thought I recognised it as something else..." or an "aha, I was right..."

(It's not a texture, anyway, it's white and blue paint mixed up... lots of blues. I'm pleased with it. But I didn't smooth everything...)

I mean I recognised the texture in the background as the result of using oil paint in ArtRage 2 :)

I played with ArtRage a lot after getting my tablet PC, but I ended up using SketchBook Pro because I felt it gave me the most control while feeling like it was designed to be extremely intuitive with pen-only control. It doesn't have a glitter tool though ;)

I like this crop for some reason. Nice touch-up by the way.

I guess it's because it shows her off better? ^_^
I find it a little boring myself. On the other hand, you need a much larger view to appreciate the other one properly :shrug:

Well, you know the hardest critic is the own artist.

I am not sure why myself. Maybe it's a matter of composition, she turn back to the mountains also...

Hello!
That neck looks a lot better - more natural and softer while still keeping the shapes. And the face looks happier - still very sharp but it does draw the eye in on the picture!! Happy New Year to you, glad i could be of help!

You were a lot of help, thank you!
I'm very glad it worked this time... took another three hours >.> ...which serves me right for not finishing properly I guess:D
I'll put the new version up on the other one now.
