What do you think of my new avatar? I'd love a really good critique on what I could have done better.
This was the old avatar that was originally up for critique.
Is the new avatar any better?

Well the arm over the chair looks a little awkward so maybe it could have a been a more graceful pose, maybe your arm on top.
With too much of your face in shadow, it is not a very good portrait. Now this is not necessarily your fault but the picture directly before this seems to indicate the main light is coming from the other side so as a model you are always told to "know where your light is".

The most important aspect of a portrait is the eyes, in this image your eyes appear to be in shadow
Your left arm is quite straight, lacks pose bend elbow, move away out to side, this will highlight your form
Right hand pose does not seem to fit the over all look
Bit to much head tilt
This is quite nice, really shows you in a good light
Wish you well

its an awful shot. What are you trying to do with that hand? Just scrap it- you could use the cupcake shot- its blurry but as an avatar shot it would work and sell your charms better.

For an avatar, it is very dark and hard to see you.
It really does not do what an avatar should do, and that is showcase you.
A different selection should encourage folks to click so they can REALLY see that you are quite beautiful.

Thank you very much! I have another shoot tomorrow, and I'm hoping to get something new to use as an avatar.
