Beautiful name, Gisaiagami (Skinny, you know something we don't, or your spelling fingers gave out?).

Your painting is good for a newbie.
The only way to have works finished is for you to finish them.
You will learn, it just takes time and practice.

Check out the Portraiture forum here for tips to better paint more realistic people. Also, check out the CGSociety, and read [url=http://features.cgsociety.org/story_custom.php?story_id=3174&page]this tutorial (http://features.cgsociety.org/articles/index.php?cat=tutorial) on painting realistic hair. I think you will be pleasantly surprised at the difference that alone will make in your renderings.
Also, try downloading and using Sarah "Sarsa" Decker's Hair Brushes (http://www.jimiyo.com/downloads/SarsaHairBrushes.abr). They are VERY effective.

This (http://www.charlesriver.com/resrcs/other/1584502320_movie.MOV) is a LARGE download, and takes a few minutes, but is well worth the wait. After you watch it a couple of times, you can try to paint it, using the Pause button at the bottom to stop the movie, as you paint it yourself. Although done in Painter, rather than PSCS, you can do it in Photoshop, except for the background. Just use the smudge tool as a blender.
Keep practicing. You have a good basic eye, you just need to sharpen your observational and rendering skills a bit.

Welcome Gislaine! (thanks Kristen!) Nice start to your digital painting... and great tips from Madster. Keep up the good work and look forward to seeing more of your artwork.

Don't give up. It takes a lot of practice time to master digital brushes and have them paint they way you want it.

Some very nice changes to the face and the hair on the head.
She looks like she has no shoulders, though.
Anatomy is also a very important part of realistic painting. Many body parts can be placed by percentages (eyes are 1/5 the head width, positioned every other width - wOwOw, shoulders are 3 head widths across, a body is between 6-8.5 head lengths in height...

Looking good, keep practicing!
