That is really good. It gives me the feeling I use to get when I first started to get into 3D of amazement. I love how you have managed to give this character a "soul". The facial expression and exceptionally the eyes make the character seem to have emotions. My only thing is that she is too beautiful. The eyebrows are to perfect. Maybe making the eyebrows a little shaggier might change this. They look like a makeup artist has just tweaked them. Maybe it is just me. I am not a big fan of the tweaked eyebrow look. Looks awesome.

Are you staring at Sandra waiting for a blink? It´s time to plug this, men. Don´t allow people to think about strange things.

Wow, I'm surprised I didn't see this until now - very nice work, and a front page plug for you
Personally I don't think she looks photorealistic, but she does look realistic in that kind of hyper-real way that the Final Fantasy and Animatrix characters from Square look. She has an unreal quality about her, that makes her look really cool, but not really believable. I don't mean that in a demeaning way - I think you've got a cool style and you've made a really great looking character.
I think your last image you posted is a lot better than the one at the beginning of the thread, you should edit your original post to display that image instead.
I think that if you want her to look more realistic (conventionally), you'll need to add some "peach fuzz" to her face, and also adjust her bump map slightly - the skin looks a little rough and leathery in places (especially the nose, lips and neck), and add more translucency to her, especially her ears. The irises also look like they are too plain...
The hair is excellent. I also really like the lighting! Her smile looks really natural, and I think it's really her smile that totally sells this image, and gives her so much character. Very cool work

Vai....imi place foarte mult!
Ea este frumoasa foc!
Vreau sa stiu... ai avut tu un izvor specific ? Sau, ai construit-o de la imaginatiea ta?
Ce a fost orar necesitat constructii?
Ai facut-o pentru servici sau "freelance"?

Absolutely fantastic work. As Leigh said, she's more hyper-real than real, but that's in a good way! Have you tried any other facial expressions?
Aslo, thankyou for posting your material settings in your WIP thread too - I notice that you've used a custom map in your refraction slot of your VrayMtl - is this to 'push' the translucancy of the material to the areas you want it?
Five more stars for this one

I don't generally post comments, but I do have to say this:
She looks real.
I think what sells her the most is that while she is indeed beautifull, her face isn't designed perfection.
Please don't take that the wrong way; she really is beautifull and to me she looks real.
