I think every critique you may get on anything ever should be taken with a grain of salt. It seems that the poster had their own idea of where they were going and the critic was tossing in some ideas to (if nothing else) try to inspire some after thought on what had already been done.

While, yes, the model so far has great promise, it never hurts to take a look at your piece from another angle. I think being able to take someone's criticism and turn it around to where it makes your work even better, then more power to the critics!

I know that when I get criticism, I get a burning desire to prove them wrong if they aren't being constructive, or to really look into what someone has to say and respect what they say and at least give it a thought.

I appreciate the abrasiveness of criticism and I think that everyone should take a little from everyone.

Keep up the good work cuban, and thanks for the help in my thread.

Thanks for the comments and suggestions guys.

Yeah I totally agree about the head, I whipped it out last night in about 30 mins so yeah I know it definitely needs some fine tunning, as for the body the masculine look is a bit intentional as mentioned I'm going for a fit character & my work always has this comic book anatomy going on. I'll definitely give all the suggestions a try keep them coming, thanks a lot.

hey I gotta say you did almost everything in the right way now!
...still there are some odd masculine features somewhere... I guess around the hips now... but still I might be wrong (I use to check features hiding everything but the part I'm interested in and the hips and the waist are somehow strange...)

btw one thing that I use to teach a lot in my design classes is that the pose is one of the biggest difference between sexes! So as long as you are satisfied with proportion the feminine pose will eventually do the rest!

keep on rocking!

Hey wow, that looks much MUCH better.
And because you're going for the comic book style, all my other criticism's can be disreguarded, because you pretty much nailed it.

head may still need just a very slight size increase. It's hard to tell with her being cut at the knees like that.

Looking good, keep it up

Very nice start on the model! I like that she's built, but still delicate in her features. The only thing now that I would adjust is the face, making it a bit fuller would make her look even more feminine. But, if you want a hint of masculine in her, I would leave it.

Interested to see this progress.

good start man, nothin much to critique so far, the body looks great! really toned. I agree with terrabite about making her facial feature more femanine though and the size of the head doesn't bother me. can we see the full model and a side view too?

Thanks for all the replies guys I really appreciate them, I'm pretty happy with the model proportion wise right now. I haven't paid much attention to the area below the knee since it's gonna be covered up by the gear. So I'll soon move onto the clothing, accessories, etc.

as requested here are different views...
