@robot_jones As usual EXCELLENT Work. . . I especially LOVE when artists share the work-in-progress; an aspiring "Mangaka" could learn MUCH more from the rough drawing of the Spetsnatz Lady (with Your attempts at create a BELIEVABLE and yet GORGEOUS female physique) than from Your ANYWAY awesomely drawn "Finished Stuff". . . Have You considered the idea of starting to create an "Westerner Mangaka" kind of "Tutorial How To Draw Pin-Ups". . .?? The fact that Your faces style is quite "Myazaky-Framed", soft and gentle-cheeked, (some of Your Characters SEEMS to be "Missing" from the pages of Nausicaa, Laputa, Mononoke Hime. . .!!) make it especially appealing to some "Harsh Critics" of TOO JAPANESE styles (for an example there are people who COULD NOT STAND too much "Masamune Shirow" style faces, such as those I attempt to draw). . .
