closeup- Etude: Empress reworked by vtas
==

It's been a long time... 2 years since I've sat down and done something "personal." (Group stuff doesn't count!) Practice, mainly, on technique and stuff. And finally, some of the different CS5 brushes :D

Wanted to add some more stuff but had to rush through for a deadline |D;;

Edit: Accepted into Exotique 7 >Edit2: OMG a DD!?! :faint: Thank you so much Moonbeam13 and ForbiddenImmortality!!

Really exquisite work-- almost Byzantine.  She reminds me of the Scarlet Empress in the RPG Exalted.  Love the muted use of color, the headdress.  Great composition. I happened upon this on a friend's page and it really caught my eye.  Thanks!

The colours and details are so beautiful, particularly the eye make-up. You've expressed her personality brilliantly: proud, regal and has real spirit.

Wow, this is fantastic. This should really be a print! If I weren't in college, I'd totally buy a print of it!
You know, it kinda reminds me of a geisha, kyoshi warrior, and Queen Amidala!
