Well you must be getting tired of this piece by now. But, thanks to the lack of a job (for the moment) and my realization that I need to have a much higher output of artwork, here she is nearly complete, almost a week from inception. She's just shy of 16x20. Anyone who decides to take a gander, feel free to make suggestions for the background. I am planning on keeping it very simple, but that doesn't mean I couldn't put a subtle gradient back there. Hmm?
