Chose this portrait to comment, but could have used quite a few others.
If the artist accepts, I will try to follow a few leads he has given us through his quest for aesthetics and beauty in the form of shapely Quix Unar.

Striking.
The first impression is massive. Everything is massive. Unar is sculptural. Every inch a well endowed female.
She doesn't exude strength (even though she has a very muscular body) or sexuality (though she is all sexual). No she exudes presence and intent.

The second striking feature of her personae is that whether clothed or not, and although it is difficult not to notice her figure and assets, one's eye is attracted to her face. It may be due in part to skin color treatment, though that has evolved without much impact on that perception, it may also be due to the clear feminity of the postures (several reminding me of Da Vinci's own choices) and the choice of both wide hips and comparatively not so wide shoulders. But it cannot explain it completely.

And that face has been consistently the center of her creator's attention, almost endlessly modifying a detail here, a curve there, the fullness of her lips, but none compare to the eyes.
And it shows. That's almost immediately the focus of all attention, creator and spectator alike.

This is all the more so striking (ah that word again) that even when focus is deliberately oriented towards her body, the eyes come out.
When looking attentively at the wide range of portraits, it becomes clear that it is the eyes, and to a lesser degree the lips, that decide the affectation, the nature of the subject at that point.

The third impression is a bit more diffuse and needs to go back and forth a bit in order to clearly perceive, remaining otherwise as a vague impression, a feeling conveyed by the author to his public: fondness. erikg is clearly very fond of her. There is a definite sensitivity expressed here. Look closely at the eyes. They often are lost as in though, when they're not simply expressing clearly kindness or attention and even longing. And very often tenderness.
This is probably partly due to the fact that they are slightly more spaced than in a "regular face". It also stems from the otherwise lack of apparent expression in the face. But what is in my mind the give away is the sheer number of different expressions they purport.
Just to give a few examples:

All right enough of this senseless enjoyment! :-)
Back to business.

So what explains that even in full sculptural mode, the gaze is attracted to the eyes? In a apparent contradiction I would venture that it is the aggressive figure itself, the in your face no compromise with my nature stance, which in a way allows us to escape its obvious attraction and migrate to more meaningful concerns...
If you want to ascertain this, what better examples than the side view portraits? The aggressivity I was describing hits us here in full force. Yet, and least I come back to her face and her eyes before taking in a gain her full figure.

Still not convinced? Even the author obviously tried to distract us with his Golden Gun...

Yeah... I thought so! ;-)

Does this make any sense to you?
What do you think?
