Wonderful blend. I especially love the braids and her ears. You must have enjoyed the contest so much that you put that much effort on it. Such a fantastic entry.

This is really great, the butterfly looks so good on her face - and you did the lower part of the nose really well!
The colours are all really nice and I like the butterfly that is the same colour as her top :)
I love how you have done the plait as well, they look really good and add to the picture in a great way.
Everything looks really smooth together - nice work :D

first of all my dear sweet Penny. i think it is time for you to move up to Advanced dear. you are so good at this. give yourself a big hug from me :hug: i think you did a perfect job. there is nothing here to improve on. so i will tell you what i love. fist of all that ear is unbeliveable. i love how you were able to get it to a point. second of all that butterfly on the face is so wonderful. you even were able to get the lower part of the nose to work right. gosh the braids are a wonderful addition to this piece. this is for you :clap:

That makes me feel really good, thankyou. I had gotten a turn down from a group and they proceeded to tell me everything I had done was wrong, only saying that the concept was good. Now that I am seeing all the great comments on this, it makes me feel better about my work. I was happy with it when I got done with it. That ear was just an experiment to see if I could get it to look as if it was meant to be there. Gotta love that liquify tool, lol. So glad that you like it and I will be adding my entries for the other challenges into the advanced folder. WooHoo (happyDancing)

i never anymore try to get my work into an elite group. they only pick their friends work. most of them don't choose manipulations because they don't believe it is "true" art. little do they know if they ever want to turn their work into a career they will have to learn how to manipulate because that is all advertisers use. the best way to find out if it is a good group is to look at who the administer and any contributors are before you join. most of the elite groups are made up of high school students that barley know how to draw manga. so don't be upset about that. you can stay with the group or leave. for me, i leave. i don't need the hassle.

yes dear you deserve to move up. you have grown so much and it shows. :heart:

Thankyou so much......blending modes and the warp tool helped quite a bit getting that butterfly on there. I even went and dodged and burned to allow the shadows and highlights from the face to show.
