Okay now it's time to start working in the light and glow from her hands and I've just blocked in a background, need to start to get a feel for what will work.

Still need to go back and have another look at her eyes!

Looking good man, time is really short - i kno how you feel dude! Just a note - i'd go without the lens flare - its a pretty cliched and over used lil effect, i reckon if you push the light and add some sub surface scatter effect to the fingers and even to the nose it would be a much 'healthier' effect overall. Additionally it might help to add some backlighting/rim lighting to the girl if you're going to use a dark and similar color background as her - it'd help bring the focus to her and make her pop from the background. Another thing to consider is adding some wetness/specular highlights to the eyes to make them pop more - theyre receding into shadow at the moment. Take it or leave these comments at your artistic discretion man - i only write this stuff coz i rarely see anyone putting up constructive criticism - which in my opinion is the only way one improves. Otherwise keep it coming man!! lookin really cool! Good Luck.

elgama dalton_muniz Thanks guys

atahan_zugul Thanks’ great input mate! I've not used any Photoshop lens effects, they are just vector shapes created in illustrator then blurred and layer effects added in PS, but I will do more to the overall "glow and light".
Background rim lighting is a must, she will need to pop out from the background as it will be quite dark. The eyes defiantly need some work!!
I'm a bit further on than this latest post, so with a little luck and juggling work commitments should just make it

Blender-Man Cheers man hopefully I'll sort the flare and glow!!

Dude - really cool - the background you painted up really sells the image - awesome paint up. Still not sold on the lens flare look, but hell - its open to artistic impression i guess - to each his own. Cant wait to see the final product - definitely be rooting for it to be in the top 3. Keep it comin man.

Fri94 atahan_zugul Cheers guys

I hear what you’re saying about the "lens flare" man and it's a fare comment,
it's just working for me I guess

Thanks for all the input and kind words, some really wicked work for this challenge, hope everyone gets done in time and good luck to all !!

I'll make sometime later today to drop by and check out everyones work!

Here's my finished image and a link to the High-Res version.
