Well since no one else is going to comment, I will step up to the plate. I like the style very much. It reminds me a bit of Chiodo like your previous flat yet painterly work. I actually like the way the nose reads in this one more than the sketch. So to recap, looking good, I like the way the styles mix, good balance.

Come on man!!! This is Beautiful . . . what a great marriage with shape and anatomy buried inside of a great painting. I think you knocked this one out of the park.

I'm normally like everything you do - though in this one the painterly style with the realistic musculature and shadows makes me parse the rest of the body like a 3D woman - so the neck says 'creepy' and the hip says 'weird' - with the illustration style my eye goes with the flow and energy of the figure - I think this could be used to good emotional effect as you master the mixture - but for me this one didn't do much for me.

This reminds me a bit of Alex Ross painting Bruce Timm's pencils. I really like the definition on the muscles and the smooth skin.

I usually really like your stuff but...

There is something seriously wrong with her arms. Why are her shoulders located in the middle of her upper arm?
