Following some pretty intense (yet happy!) RP the last coupla day, my human coercer has been adopted into a happy family and is no longer rothe. Yay for RP and for Antonia Bayle and the Raven-Mythic. I'm kinda proud of these two. Constructive Criticism is welcome for future learning (and boy do I need to learn) but they are done. Yay!
In the beach scene: the background has more of a grainy feel which your model doesn't match. She's brighter than the soft beach lighting the background picture has - keeping an eye on the flow of the lighting is something that I always have a problem with, myself. In addition, maybe softening up the model, so she's not so sharp against the beach would help lend to the realism as well.
In the garden scene: You have the same issues in this one as well. The ground is extremely dark underneath the grass and the bush on the left. They don't quite look like they're part of the background. The lighting seems unnatural compared to the darkness of the trees further behind the gate.
Just something to keep in mind. Both are lovely scenes, but the lighting kind of confuses the eye - at least it does for me. Hope that helped. =)
I see a bit of a line on her neck.. separating head from torso I guess.. you may wish to smudge that a bit.
