    Looks fantastic. A breakdown of your hair process would be super appreciated.

    Is there any mesh for the eyebrows? The rest is so realistic, it looks like the eyebrows are painted on.

    Beautiful. These little imperfections on her skin really sell it to me. Please continue her into a full character.

    Are those haircards still just planes, or are they constructed in a certain way?

    That is to ask, what is your workflow for it?

    well a lot of work is still to be done including skin shader :D yeah eyebrows are on a cap plane but since they are not going to add a lot of geometry idk if i will be adding any cards on top

    about the hair it is nothing fancy just plane cards with opacity currently looking like this and i composed them into big clumps containing a few cards so it will be easier and faster to place then it is just placing with splines in max :D

    This is looking fantastic! Thanks for sharing.

    About the eyebrows, they're almost perfect. You might be able to get away without adding any planes by doing some minor adjustments to them. The main aspects making them look drawn on are the shape and density.



    Eyebrows tend to arch towards that region (blue line) between temple and forehead whose name in English I don't know and I'm too lazy to google, heh. The catch is that even straight eyebrows will have a peak here (green). The peaks of your eyebrows instead are too far into the temples because their lower edge arches up without an accompanying raise at the top, making it read as if someone plucked everything out in a straight line there. Note that the peaks aren't solid, the majority of the time the hairs are pretty sparse there, softening their effect.

    Your eyebrows are also uniformly dense as if she were a bit heavy-handed when filling them in with a pencil. The beginning of eyebrows (purple) has a vital role in making it look natural. It'll be 1. Sparse, gradually filling in; 2. Grow in initial direction of the nose-eye socket crest without following it all way to the tips, as in: The hair is projected in a straight path once it leaves the skin, so some will point up, others to the side with its curves being due the inherent properties of the hair (strand shape, clumping), not attempts to keep sticking to the emitter's topology; 3. Relatively shorter than the middle.

    Sort of slight color touch up and a touch of lighting control on the posted image.

    I know its probably color grading at the photo place before distrubution but a little more saturation might help give it a little more life (for me) do as you wish, nice project you are hitting it on the head. (pun?) Either way i like it. I do not have an amazing monitor nor have i used the spyder device to get correct coloration profile on my monitor hope it looks good to all.  Keep this in mind.

    thanks for the feedback, yeah you are probably right your version looks better I have been struggling with her skin tone a loot since it depends so much on the light and camera it was taken with. I will be working on it more for sure:)
