This is absolutely not what I should have been doing all day (all night/morning ;__;). She started off as just a painting of a face, intended to be a warm up, but I got a bit carried away. 

Also I've reeallly been trying to change the way I paint. For a long while I was obsessed with hard edges and I still am to a degree but I want to be more painterly and I'm happy with how this went.

She is beautiful. As a machine, a woman or simply a living being. She has an ethereal quality that should be impossible for machinery. I love the backdrop as well, the oldest of human art forms in juxtaposition with the most recent.

Edges can be very revealing for a particular pic or area of one. Keep at it.

I love her face. She has that perfect expression of a near miss or light exhaustion as well as a little disbelief. Like she's laughing about a close call. Which is a great expression because it looks like she's just been through something that would have utterly destroyed any biological human.

Need me a girl like that.
Absolutely stellar chassis work. Loving the mix of flesh tones, skin and components.

I love what you've done with her face. Making her features a little softer shows a very different side of what otherwise is inhuman (and IMHO thus less relatable). I find the degree of difference to be striking, and it has made me much more interested in her as a character.
