Gulp - this is my submission for Expose 11, I've just submitted it
I have my fingers crossed, It was alot of fun to draw her.
regardless of whether she gets in or not, I'm very pleased with her.
this is the hardest I have worked on a piece in a long time.
I have used my own mits for reference for the hands

I still wonder why I didn't fave this one :rollingeyes: ... her glance is particularly mesmerizing, catching! Then there's the richness of all the rest... Tip: have you tried to play with Gimp's fractal flames when creating light balls or light flames? It's something I'm planning to do for a remake of one of my works. I expect some very nice results with it.

Wonderful! Let's share our findings then :happybounce: . I'd be glad to read from your experimentations and I'll tell you mine as soon as I come up with something I like. And you're most welcome BTW. I am totally ignorant of this character in fact; who is she? Why, do you think, is she so unpopular?

Okay. Will do ;). She's of my own devices, just a woman I
created. I Think therein lies the problem, My fan art
Will always gain me more attention, it's sad though, especially when you do put in all the hard work.

I can feel you here. Chose between reputation or your own way... I can't tell you what to do of course, you're the only wise judge. Just that to me it doesn't matter if fan art or not. Your works all gain equal attention. (I think you know that, don't you? ;-) )

I do, it's the reason I love you so. I adore doing the fan art, don't get me wrong,
I will only ever draw a character that I love and has inspired me to do so, I love that
Feeling of "I need to draw you" It reminds me of being a child.
There's nothing like the success of one of your own though.

This splendid work has been featured in my journal: [link]
