ok so this pic was in a misc download folder that amber (sailorchiron) set up for making wingslovers banners for a contest. the face & ringlets are beautiful but her body is all disporportionate so i didn't want to use that. so i cropped it to just be the neck and head and vectored the outlines pink bc she reminds me of a ballerina. the ringlets took forever. i spent from 1pm to 1am yesterday vectoring the outlines. then i filled in everything with base colors and painted all the shading in. i was going for a water colored look so that is why the shading is not percise. the bg is a texture overlay with some "antiquing". the painting and bg took from 10:30pm to 12:30 am 2nite. ^,,^' enjoy!

    Some spider webs in back would've been a nice
    addition, or maybe some texture ^^ Wonderful vectoring job.

    Simple and nice. Maybe Without border and some texture will be nice anyway it is good.

    Very beautiful, it's rare to see someone using this stile, the contrast between light and dark is really awesome.
