I'm sure it may have been better had I used already stitched lip stock however I'm trying to learn how to paint better and manipulate photos effectively witout simple aids. I would like critiques on this especially the shadows. I wasn't sure if I got it right. Its sopposed to appear doll-like and fake.
Credit to jaded-reflection for the needle and
Drgnstock for the twine.
The model is my image.
The eye of course is from pxleyes (5 years and 1872 days ago)

super successful on the detail High Res is AWESOME (IMHO)... I love the concept (but I'm a sucker for plaid) in my other life I wanted to be a lesbian Canadian.. hehehehe.... good luck author and very good job.. very inventive and fun

Ouch ! This looks too real. Great job on the stitching, I think your shadows make it pop. Only thing you might try is to make the twine and needle shadow the same darkness as the face shadow under the scarf. Very nice blending too. Glad to see the stray hair removed also. All the red makes the blue eye just jump out to the viewer.
Great job, and out of the box thinking. GL

I think you did a pretty good job here in this piece. The stitching is good, and the shadows are accurate. I don't see a problem with the hair. I think maybe a little more white out on the skin or perhaps the blur tool on the skin to make it a little more "fake" with really bright highlights to make it seem more a little more "porcelain." Great job though.

Super work and love the blending in of the eye ... it should be creepy with the stitches but some how it ends up having an almost ethereal look (IMO). Great!
