Not sure this is front page material, but if you want to make it better, you should unify the light sources, and put the characters/background in the same perspective. And dont rely on the smudge/liquify brush so much, its not effective, and it cheapens the image.

I totally agree with Briareos, this piece definitely would benefit a lot from more consistency overal.

But well, as long as an audience is happy, I guess the goal is reached!

Nice work man. Congrats on the front page.

Quite pretty! The details are very nicely done, especially like the face of the right character, though it could use a bit translucency... My main crit is that there's no real point of interest and my eye drifts over the picture, not toward a certain point. I would place an opening in the trees above, so the sunlight hits the right character from the top right, main focus on her and then maybe a bit more light on the left character... that would certainly make it stand out more. But since this is a final piece I'm sure this will stay like that, great work nevertheless.

Very beautiful and sexy! I like the story behind and in fact it can be felt from the image itself, which to me alone means nothing less than

I'm sorry but I don't have any crits.

Thumbs up Superb

It's really superb, I love the overall mood, and the detail on everything. I hope I can be as good as you one day...

5* from me too

IMO, the cropped images looks better than the final image itself. due to comments made earlier by Briareos and Mathias about consistency.
it looks like lots of smaller pics put together into one without taking the whole pic into consideration.
mainly because of the to-many lights sources shining from to-many directions casting light almost everywhere. to me this does not evoke any emotions nor story. only details and almost 4 breasts. cropped images looks good though.

Hi Emile,
Inspiring and what a great amount of details in this piece!
And maybe, this is its downfall (for some), there are no main point of interests and like, derby, my eyes kept on passing by this picture to ravel at the details.
Rebeccak is right as well. lol. I do think CiF's intention failed to come across. Possibly due to his English?

A lot of interesting comments.
I know there are a lot of point in my work which I could/should improve. Someone mentioned that it looked like separate parts put together later on. That’s true. Remember I’m working very much in a learning mode and I approach a scene like this as little challenges and work on each one separately Obviously losing my overview with concern to a.o. light source, consistency etc etc. and after working for weeks on end on this one painting I become used to these flaws.
That’s one of the reasons I chose to expose myself on a wonderful place like CGTalk. Which makes it (sometimes painfully) clear that I’m only just starting to learn about the workflow, design and the art of digital painting. But at the same time gives me this great opportunity to learn......

So thank you.
