Looks a billion times better.
The original paint was ok, but odd.
I think she was lifeless and the big iris was strange in the diagonal and squinty eyes.
This looks so much better.

I think ukshaun just meant bigger eyes in general, but with, of course, proper proportions of iris and sclera.
Yes, I was talking about the iris.
You're probably right, previous iris were too big, and the sclera wasn't white enough... Anyway, bit bigger iris on the new paint would be perfect for me. But it's ok. Sold!

As for the eyes, and the lips for that matter, this as big as they could make them look with the sculpt available. It was my number one requested fix. Trust me, huge difference..... Plus, any larger, and you run into cartoony territory, at least for me.

I wonder why HMO made her eye lashes so light? not dark?
Her lips should have been painted larger.

Been looking at this some more. The darker eye lashes makes more sense. As someone else mentioned, the iris should be larger. HMO possibly painted them too large.

Yeah, no idea why they made the choices they made.

To each their own, I definitely wouldn't want the iris larger... not a fan of that look. This looks like a nicer, more realistic version, which is perfect for me.

When all is said and done I am glad I got her, thanks to the redo. It was really the last game I played in earnest.... now I am just old Level52 worked on her.

I gave up on the game after failing on the level that takes place in a type of arena, where wave after wave of enemies jump in. It goes on for far too long, the constant button stabbing becomes a chore. Poor game design.

HMO still have Nariko for sale. Some sellers are asking more than HMO are selling at

I've been tempted many times, but held off. If i knew of a talented painter in the UK, then i'd be tempted to buy Nariko and have the portrait re painted. I could attempt it myself, but i probably don't have the skills (i wouldn't be happy with the results).
