    Great PP! I'm still very new to it so my critique is limited but, I think it looks great. Good Job here!

    The scar line is cut off just above the 2nd finger, at the bottom of the neck. And there is some weird highlight on the top edge of the right arm.

    You could increase lightness, contrast and saturation to have a more living picture (title suppose she is still alive...) and preserving the ambiance but that's personnal preference. See what I mean

    Very nice picture and very good effect. If you want to share your technique, it would be appreciated.

    I just saw the zipper one on the web link. It's very nice and well done.

    It gave me a good idea for a joke...

    I wanted it to be kinda of doll-like, kinda of surreal. And yes, I didnt even notice the scar line is cut off. Thats what I have you guys for! ill post the zipper one

    The skin around the botton horizontal 'cut' looks more like cloth than skin to me.

    The nose doesn't look quite right. I'm not sure if it's over-processed or what since I'm new to this. Excellent work on the rest of it though.

    you've gone a bit harsh on the smoothing of the face. It's easy to get carried away when doing that sort of thing. Knowing when to stop is as important as know how to execute the technique.

    The skin looks posterized and most of the tonality and texture is gone.

    Funny idea tho. :thumbup:
