You're welcome.

And my classmate and I are in the Virgin Islands, so I guess it couldn't possibly be her... though she DID do a modeling job over the summer and IS German, which is a bit of a freaky coincidence.

EXCELLENT job, but, looking at the photo-ref you used, i think you should make the freckles a little lighter, and perhaps include the freckles that arent on the nose, making them even lighter. i know it's a bit late for suggestions, this has probably been finished for ages.
i think the teeth are very very impressive. they dont stand out particularly, but i have had to vector teeth in the past, and it's hard not to make them look stupid. you didn't fall the trap of making them white, so they blend in really nicely.
the shadows under the nose could possibly have been avoided. it took me a while to get skin tones right but i think this would look pretty good with those extra tones (saying that, you said my that the face in my latest vector was too plain!).
well, i'll shut up now.

- ligher freckles
i tried a lighter color when i was working on the piece, but they looked too light, got confused with the skin and lost some of the detail. maybe it's just a monitor calibration problem.

- freckles "outside" the nose
same problem as above. i tried doing them with the same color but they were definetevely too dark against the lighter skin shade. making them a different color looked weird. plus i've been working on that piece for so long that when i came to freckles i was a little tired of it, so i didn't experiment too much.

- teeth
thanks! i think they usually are the most difficult part of a portrait. so i'm really glad you like them! :bow:

- skin tones
looking at the picture after a while i do agree that the shadow under her nose could have been avoided or at least made a little lighter. it's not that bad, but it makes the picture look like a strong light was coming from below her while the original picture is quite different.

thanks sooooo much for your comments :nod:
