I think it's a beautiful solution and I like the colors and the render of the lips and eye.

The proportions of the face are not very "realistic", but they don't need to be if you don't want to. :nod:

I understand you didn't go for photorealism and I find it quite charming.

tank u very much~~X3

really? which part don't look proportional? like the positions of the eyes? or the nose?
i guess it's sorta semi-realism but i would still like to kno which parts looks off~

XDD that's cuz i'm way too lazy...and without references, it's impossible for me to go for photorealism 8DD
aww tank u~

As I said I don't like being strict about proportions and realism as there is many kinds and levels of realistic proportions and finishing. It just that nose and mouth seems too low in relation to the eye.

The most common proportions (that doesn't correspond to every human for sure and also doesn't to every style) is that the distance between chin an nose is about the same of the one between nose and eyebrows and eyebrows to top of skull. So if you're looking for a tradicional canon, here you go. ^^
