For the August MY-FX monthly challenge "Fragile Things".
I guess with these challenge things I'm just doomed to painting small children. Not sure why, they're just the first people to pop into my head.
This is probably some of my most detailed skin ever. I came across a hint from miss Marta Dahling in a back issue of ImagineFX that helped me out there. Painting overlapping dots on the brightest parts of the skin sort of gives the illusion of pores and imperfections. Also, this little girl is a freckly thing. :)
The bubble was rough. I had to look up a lot of images before I could get the reflections right.
Here's a link to an animated gif of a few progress shots: [link]
