Started her awhile back. Used reference I found on Google. I hate painting hair so I am avoiding it for now. I will start on her clothing soon, after I get the skin finished up. I am also having trouble with getting her eyes to look glossy, anyone have any tips? Tell me what you think, I am always open to suggestions.

Wow, I think you are doing an awesome job so far!! Would you be able to post a copy of your reference pic? What I do for the eyes to make more glossy is out on the corners i add a bit more pink, and closer to the iris on both sides I add a very light purple or blue, framing the iris and for the highlights. It seems to help it "pop".

Thanks Rebecca,
I wanted it to have a more painterly look, but I ended up refining a lot of areas. Thanks for the tips on the eyes. I think I will try that when I get back to this painting. Here is the reference. I didn't copy her exactly as I wanted to study the face more than anything. So I got rid of the makeup and jewelry. Now that I look at it though, I missed a lot...Guess she isn't done though.

I'd say you done an amazing job so far, I can't really see much to be changed. Try fix her eyes, and give a hint that she has eyelids, finish the ear and repost. It is looking awesome!
