fantastic work! i like the work in progress as well. the lighting seems off looking from her arms to the legs, but maybe that's just because there isn't a background... either way, the pose, expression and hair are VERY well done, so great job!
Thank you so much Dawn. I have approached this the same way I do with my fan art. I just wanted to paint it so realistically that your eyes have to scan every inch of her face and body. Your comments are so uplifting to me, thank you again
