Help with shoes *argh* XD

Shoes officially hate me. And I was just about to announce I was getting better. The base's feet angle don't like me so I'm asking for help. I was thinking about making something like the shoe in the reference picture. High heel, black, fashionable (ignore Emma Watson on top, I was referencing her hair colour, still working on the hair shape).

Any help on how to place the pixels on that feet to make the shoes would be appreciated. Redlines highly encouraged, reference pics and examples also.

Thanks in advance!

I've done a few redlines on the shoes. Her left shoe (our right) needs a bit less of an arch. The way the shoe is now it looks like a big chunk of her foot has been cut out. Her right shoe (our left) needs to be more rounded.
I'm not good with descriptions so I hope the redlines help XD.

Thank you so much, Niki! I fixed the shoes and finished everything rest.

CC on the rest of her is welcome, people!
I am about to submit her tomorrow.

She looks great :). The only other thing I can suggest is something to do with her shoes again XD. On her left foot there's a pixel near the arch that makes a spot on the shoe look too pointy. To fix it simply take the pixel out.

1. you shaded the boobs too dark towards the top of the dress. ignore the dress, the boobs themselves are highlighted in the middle, adding a dress over them doesn't change that.

2. there's really no reason for a dark spot in the middle of her stomach. it looks like her body caves, which just isn't physically possible.

3. bracelet is good, might look better if it was bigger and looser on her wrist

4. this is tooling issue i think. your shadow under the dress is red, not flesh colored.

good though :D

Thank you both for your cc. I do appreciate it.

Here's she, edited. Added details, a belt and a small tatoo, and fixed her dress. My problem is her breast area. It seems flat and pillow shaded but I can't fix it. I searched for ref. pics but that didn't help much- first time! Her hair bugs me too, but I'l leave it for last.

Since I like messing up other people's creations, I did a quick and sloppy edit to illustrate my questionable advice. 8) Hope that's okay.

For the breast area, since boobs push the cloth away from the body, you don't usually get that detailed contours of each breast, unless it's a skin-tight bodysuit or something of that sort. Also her upper body is at an angle, so there'd probably be some more shadows to show the right shape. It looks a bit too 'front view' for that angle.

You can totally ignore what I did with the bottom part of the dress. xD Only thing I'd note is that there seem to be a bit too many small folds on the left side (our left). Especially since her thigh and hip should be under the fabric there somewhere and it would show as a bigger highlight fold.. thing.

The hair looks very nice to me, I'd only add some darker shadows to show more shape. :)

Hope there's some advice you can use in here somewhere. xD
