nice colors, and a great back ground!
I'm a little concerned about her right arm. The arm going straight from sholder down puts the elbow right about at the waist, here it's under her breast. Now if it's back behind her, we wouldn't see the arm - maybe check your ref & let me know if I'm right -

Lovely Beverly!!!! Vails are a wonderful idea and the whole figure is well done!! Tiny nit, maybe only me, I found her pubic hair to be a bit too prominent. Seems like the vail is opening up at that particular place for that specific purpose. Find it takes away from the delicassy and elegance of the figure.

I agree with Uschi about that specific area. Wasn't going to mention it if nobody else did. Also think the nipples are a bit strong in color.

I really like the way you did the veils and the background and the hair, though. And your figures always have such a sweet expression!

Now that I look again .. . I take what I said about the nipples back. They're fine

Karen...her arm is bent at the elbow and most of the upper arm is behind her body. It does not show too well with the way I have it painted.

Uschi...it is a little bold...I had not planned on the veil opening there. *LOL* actually it does not show well here...but some of the veil goes across her pubic area.

Cinnamon...*LOL* thanks....nudes are not my forte...but like to do them sometimes.
