Very nice, but I like the first original better. It seems softer, and the woman looks more feminine ;-) -- The lighting is better in the first also IMHO.

I can't view your original image. it says I'm Forbidden.
For some reason the girl in your image is looking more like American chick :o Probably her proportions.

i agree with nunz.. the old pic is really greater than the current one. she's sweet

I also like the older one better. Even though I think you demonstrate a greater handle on her anatomy in the newer version (she looks like she's been working out) in the old version she just looks sweet.
The face is also better in the old one.
BOTH are good BTW but if faced with a choice, I'd want to be cut by the first version ;)

thank you guys for your replies, i wish more people would crit in this section too.

Have to agree with the rest; first is best. The first one's body with the second one's face would be great :) Also, her breast are a bit far apart from each other, but that might just be personal preference :D I think I'm objective when saying that they start a bit high up on her body thou, seems like her chest should be flatter there.

First off, great pics. IMO, the first ones body is better, she looks better with a flat stomach then the six pack, and her breasts seem funny in the second one(the nipples seem to be more defined ) I do like the second ones face better, as well as her hair and the grass is greatly improved. Good job.

i think her abbs are a little two defined to be such a feminine figure, but other than that..

yeah, agree with Panupat. does not look japanese at all, hair is also wron colour

the old is WAY better.

I lived in Japan for 14 years. Neither of the faces looks very Japanese.
I like the mouth of the first.
The ribcage in both look a little wrong
bridge of the nose. Very few Japanese have such a high nose bridge.
More of a dropped bridge and ski jump
breasts also look a bit western
Usually Japanese breasts do not sag like this
What is the Indian caste mark doing on her forhead?
If she is a geisha the white face would go down onto her neck and even form a V. Her eyebrows would be painted on and usually a little higher.
Also Geisha paint their lips to be very small.
the katana's cutting edge would have a wavy pattern towards teh middle of the sword from the way it is sharpened.
Don't like the six pack, but think a middle ground between the 6 pack and the first would be nice.

The old picture is a lot more attractive. The softer lines and form look really beautiful. I must say that none of them look particularly Japanese partly because of the face and partly because of the skin tone which is more western then oriental. I am sure some with some good reference material you could fix that.If it was a picture of someone from another country the it would be really good.
I do love the way you have handled the specular highlights they really add dimension to the body. I wish I could do that:thumbsup:
The only other thing is the aspect ratio of the picture. Mabey a full length shot rather then a picture with the legs cut off would work better. I am no expert but it just feels odd to look at.

Huhm.. a bit to muscular i think...
And the breasts aren't that attractive
I also would make the haircolor a bit darker.
