No excessive specular or shadow at the moment.
It looks bad though, really bad. Hair seems too... clumpy.
Advice on good hair techniques would be nice, other than "Do hairs all individually" - I know that can work but I know there's a more efficient way.

Ignore the eye.

Ignore the eye.

I usually do 12-15 strands of hair individually, then copy paste them, warp their shape and use color corrections on them to break the monotony. That's how I did the hair for this piece.

Thanks, I add some individuals over the top and change the colour balance etc. for blending.
