This is finally in the hands of my hairdresser and is a portrait of her daughter who has aged by a year in the time itís taken me to complete this.
I wonít state my true feelings here on what I feel about the quality of this as I know Iíll be nagged by certain members on here but suffice to say Iím glad itís now finished.
The fur jacket texture was a new one for me and I hope itís recognisable for what it is.
Iíd like to thank *CaroleHumphreys
both of whom were kind enough to critique this before I completed it and pointed many improvement I could make to it which I hope Iíve pulled off.Approximate time:
