Well, I am particularly proud of this one. I finished it under 10 hours and am very pleased with the result. Mainly because the image isn't my usual dark colour scheme, and i just love the eyes and flower in the hair.

The concept was inspired by 'Dianae's tutorial ([link]) on portraits. From the falling petals to the gold stitching on the fan. She is SO GOOD! But when I created the image, unlike her method, I worked totally in black and white first, then added tints to create the colour.


After some reviews at Imagine FX I managed to fix this one up a bit. The changes were minor, but worth it.
Hope you like it!
