just dislike the line dividing the two parts of her farther arm. makes it really weird and i was quite some seconds to discover what was that sorry.. but i simply love that character! and this image much as well
She is actually a sum of all different kind of elements (eyes, nose, hair) I have seen and memorized. That is how I do all my paintings or most of them anyway. I guess her hand is a bit slopy. Unforunately I tend to get bored at the end of a painting and finish them sometimes too soon.
I use Win XP & the program that skins the taskbar, startmenu and windows is called WindowBlinds, there's a trial version, then you have to buy it, 95% of the skins are free and can be found on DA or other sites on the net, but mosty at WinCustomize. You can make your own, but I don't. The calendar is Rainlendar(free) and is skinable and can do events and todo list. SysMetrix(free and skinable) is a meter program, clock, memory, hardisk usage etc. Every thing I used was found here on DA.
That face... wow. If only the skull had been rendered in such equisite detail. : ( The skull is what caught my eye in a thumb nail and brought me to this awesome piece. Wishing you much and continued success.
