Midna: Imp Form

Eek. I'm really kind of terrified to have my Midna critiqued but I really want to get her perfect. There are some details I'm already aware that I need to fix but I'm wondering if I could improve anything else.

I also have some questions for anyone to answer for me, the more comments the better!

- I was wondering if I should continue to use the orange, yellow, red eye shadow detail around my eye even when I get red contacts. I personally believe it helps really make the eyes pop because of the shadows created by the helmet but I wasn't sure if I should because of the red contacts.
- I definitely need to spike this wig. Possibly add the orange tinting? I definitely need to spike it though.

Details Needed to be Added that I'm already aware of:
- I'll be fixing the ears. I'm wondering if I should make them out of craft foam instead? Heat foam and attach to the headpiece. I'll be adding the flares on the ears as well.
- The wispy shadows need to be added to the shoulders and arms.
- I am definitely getting red contacts.
- I'll be adding the hair piece tie.

I appreciate any kind of critiquing! I really want to get her right. Thank you so much <3

Oh my goodness, this is amazing. The only thing I can see is that in some angles you can see the area of your neck that you didn't paint and I can't tell in the picture if you have Midna's yellow hair tips or not.

The helmet is amazing!! Great work! I wouldn't use the eye shadow, maybe it's only because you mentioned it, but it seemed a bit awkward. Also, I agree with putting more paint down your neck so that way it's better masked. Maybe you could get a mask in the same material as your outfit to create a seamless look, or a new kind of make-up. It seemed a bit too translucent and not bright enough. My last critique would be that some of the lines on the body suit (specifically the one between black and white on your chest (right side)) are not as clean as they could be.

Over all your attention to detail is amazing and the paint job is really great! Your poses are perfect as well! Great work! (:
