Girl on the Wing by blinktastic Girl on the Wing by blinktastic
This vexel was quite the challenge. It was my first time shading with gradients (face) which turned out to be much more fun and addicting than I had expected. I keep seeing things wrong with this each time I look. It's imperfect, but I like it that way.

Here's the reference-link

edit//~Wow, I can't believe I got a DD. Thank you everyone for your comments, suggestions, and favorites!!! :) I would love to reply to every comment, but my procrastination is getting the best of me. :hmm:
