This is very good. You've created a very interesting deviation. It looks like you softly smooth her out just enough without looking like it has been painted, so kudos to you for that.
But I do have problem with the parrot. He looks out of place and a little awkward. Almost like an after thought. My suggestion is to leave him out, that is if you do have the layers saved where you can removed him. Still, I would try if I were you.
I also have another suggestion. Her crown seems awfully bright that it takes away from the model. It becomes more important than the models face which we should be looing at. If you can tone that down, it would be less shiney.
Otherwish I really like everything else. Especially the environment she's in. It fits her
I agree about the parrot, and I will remove it. I have the layered file.
I am struggling with lights, in all my manips. I don't have a very good eye for it as I understand, and always welcome thoughts on how I can improve the manip.
Thank you for your words, they make me understand where I am going wrong, and where I need to pay more attention. I appreciate the effort that goes into it.
Thank you once again. I will update the file with the edited one.
