So here it is. That image I probably raised people's expectations too much over.
I was very impressed with myself about this one, because for the first time in a long time I felt like I was in control of the brush. I didn't struggle to paint or blend or anything. Things just worked, and I think this is better than all my other stuff in regards to execution, realism, and technicality. That stuff really matters to me because when I can do something well, it doesn't feel like I'm just some twit smearing digital paint around and seeing what results they get. I actually feel like I know what I'm doing.

Reference used.

This is all yours, Arixus! YOU MY BFF AND UR CHARACTER IS SO PRETTY! I hope this process was as much fun for you as it was me.

Stunning. Again... it's the eyes that capture my attention. They are so well accented by her earrings, and the whiteness of her shirt. Her face is beautiful, in that classic beauty you just don't see anymore. You paint some absolutely lovely work.

And again, thank you for your well thought out comment! Do you know, I only added the earring as an afterthought? So many people have commented on it, that I'm glad I threw it in there. I think this is my best work, and it's really tough emulating it.

The colours, definition, and shade are beyond realism. You sir.. are an artist.

Thank you very much. I think this is my best work to date, and it's hard to produce work to the same standard. I feel like this one was a "fluke" and that I'll never be able to get the same quality in my work in the future.
