Tink, the mischievous sprite

I tried a new technique this time. I love the realistic result. I used Nathie's skin brushes and they made all the difference. I'll be doing a step by step tutorial of this image soon.

This is not a photo manipulation or 3D render. There was no over-painting or tracing. She was painted by hand.

Brushes by [link]

Photoshop CS4 + Wacom tablet about 15 hours
Prints available!
Thank you for looking.

Beautiful portrait!:clap: I like the realistic look very much. Especially the elf ear and also her hair style. She seems very serious, too...

I've been plagued with morning sickness since discovering I was expecting last month. It has been delayed but I do hope to do this in between commercial projects soon.
