Default Critique please

I would appreciate a critique on this portrait. What would you do differently? Using PSP9.

Paul, I think you've made a great pattern of the young lady. The only thing I may have done differently is given some definition to her bottom lip. Very nice job.

Thanks Sue, I wouldn't have noticed that. I will work on it some more.
Good thing I asked for advice.

i agree with sue,somtimes i dont notice these bits either,but when i do i add them on when im cutting,one other thing i would do ,i would simplify the area around the buttons,i think there is a few delicate areas there that could be a bit tricky.otherwise a great pattern PAUL

Thank you. You're right Tony. After looking at that button area again simplification would ease the tension some.
