It is so realistic! Only thing I have to say is that her coat looks a bit flat or out of place in comparison to the detail of the face.

Looks really good so far. Especially the hair and the creases.

It's really detailed, but I feel a little too detailed in some and not enough in others. There aren't any lines near her lips, but somewhat of an excess near her laugh lines. [link] <---- Doesn't have to be exactly like this, but there are lines there when people age. Also, I feel like there isn't quite enough attention paid to the shadowing and lighting of her hair as there is to the skin. She looks 100 versus the confirmed 80 years old because of the excess of wrinkles. They're placed nicely otherwise. Also, (I'm so sorry for being over-picky), but I think that her ears stick out too much. The droop is right, but I don't remember her having such big ears in reference to her face. I think the droop is about right, but the amount that they stick out from her head is a little over-exaggerated. Her head also feels just the slightest bit too small.

Don't get me wrong.

._. I really enjoy the picture and I think it's great.
