wow, great job
a couple of things. (IMO)
i think you should blur the foreground a bit more, i think the camera distance from the subject and the blur amount is a bit off.
that purple-ish spot on the bottom left kinda takes away from the focal point (the fairy creature)
and the red hair... humm i would go with a light green.
i think this peice more artistic than CG-esque (whatever that means)...
i can see this peice on a billboard or in somekind of commercial.
work on the lighting a bit more.
great still man. keep up the good work -_- :thumbsup:

Great job:thumbsup: very nice lighting match to the photo background (i assume it's a photo, otherwise please pass the foot salt)

The only thing that stands out to me is the hair, it dosent seem to match the rest of her. She's a styelized charecter, but her hair is very real looking.
Also, her eyebrows should match her hair ;) Not exactly, but definatly lighten them a little bit. (unless she dyes her hair :o )

Great image! The only thing that really bothers me is the chest area. Her hair is draped over her shoulders so there wouldnt be as much light on her chest as there is on her face for example, but in the picture they are almost the same tone. Try giving it more pronounced shadows.

I think that the blur in the front end of the picture is fine. But IMO you should blur her feet just a little bit to help add depth.

bang up job there... really nice lighting and compositing.

only thing that bugs me(if anythin) is the only spot thats really blurry is where she meets the grass... obviously to blend the 2 images together... maybe add a little blur to some of the other pieces of grass to soften up a little more of the image... might come up with a more realistic job...

other than that... great work:buttrock:

really nice lighting, great job overall, though in a way for some reason she appears to be detached from her surroundings
