    The ear looks a bit odd, I ain't sure what you exactly tried to achieve there. Eyes and mouth are too thin/small for my taste, tho I generally make all my female characters drop-dead by habit lol

    What's the concept btw? There's a whole lot of non-pastel colors going on, and it causes her to draw attention too much and at too many places at once.

    I love the shading job on clothes pants btw, looks really nice. But there's just too much colors about :)

    It was supposed to resemble a sun worshiper. I ditched the idea and went out with a darker character instead since the previous one was quite disappointing.

    I'm all ears for suggestions regarding the colors. I'll update the top cloth area a bit later.
    I think that Imma squeeze out some of those 'earrings' since they turned out too much to handle.

    It can't be helped for the eyes and mouth btw, the wrap is quite bad to make anything larger than that.

    Edit: Screenshots taken with the 512x512 version.

    I'm curious now, as I'm considered a pro come to skinning female faces. Now I wanna challenge myself to do Watcher :D

    67chrome did an epic face on his blood elven watcher skin, it might be worth it to take a look.

    It was a missunderstanding, he linked it in another thread where he wrote Nightborne. It was a typo though so that's why.

    There's too much purple? Boobs seems a bit flat maybe some little highlights? Hair's is too dark in the bottom part. But overall, seems pretty nice and solid! Good job <3

    Yeah, It's been brought to my attention.

    I thought of loosening the purple saturation a bit and redo the torso area 'bit.
    That and adding more straps and armor parts to her legs.
    Any suggestions?

    Edit: Updated!
