My first female character in Blender

After a long time of researches and tests. I finally finished my first female character in Blender. I’ve learned a lot with this project, especially in not giving up! Sometimes, some results may be hard to conquer, but with dedication and study you can do anything!

I learned a lot about topology and proportions, and definitly my next project will be a lot better than this one.

Let me know what you think, any criticism is welcome!

Major Adjustments in the Head Mesh

After two months without doing any progress in my female character, due the lack of free time. I came back, and, before continue with the hair. I had to do some very important adjustments in the head model.

Thanks to Jeannot Landry (a very active user from Blender Artists Forum) Who helped me out with some issues in the proportions of the head. My female character doesn’t look like an alien anymore. And now, she possesses traits more realistic and feminine.

Maybe I can do that in the compositing? any suggestions?

This is what I got so far:
