This reminds me of that girl in Xmen, you know, the one that can transform into people.

Amazing work, such a simple background and simple shapes only to keep the attention on the amazing shapes covering the body.

Sir, this is an example of an epic uses of color as well as the other element. I love the way it matches well with the skin. I also love the mixing done to it.

Ahh, was waiting for this one. I think it's my favourite from you this release. You've worked the texture really well, although perhaps where it crosses over from her stomach to arm there could have been a noticeable hop up. I just think that would help with the depth, because the difference in distance would maybe warrant breaking it up a bit.

Other than that though, I love the colours, and the subtle circles placed around the model.

Thanks man; the stomach thing is an area I spent a lot of time on trying to get right. I know it's not perfect, but it's better than how it was, haha.

Haha, I'm not doubting the amount of time you'll have put into it - from what I've seen you're never half-assed about that kinda thing. :)

The tattoo idea is nice as well, maybe a bit much but it suits her nicely ^^

did you use gradient maps to get the texture to follow the contours or did u use 3d modelling to achieve the effect? just interest because normally the texture would look flat on the surface, while here there is no loss of the models fidelity.
