Commission for Niamhsama from a chapter in her fanfic "Of Gods and Monsters."
Started July 15th, 2006, and finished tonight, September 2nd, 2006. I'm not sure how many hours I spent on it total, but I'd come home from work and try to get in at least a half-hour or an hour (I commute an hour and a half to work each way, so I usually don't get home until 6:30pm-7:30pm). Some of the things I had to really keep in mind were lighting and values between the two characters - which I constantly was going into Photoshop for color-corrections or increasing the deepness of the shadows.
At this point in the story, a pregnant Teles has returned to a very distraught Sesshoumaru, after being away from him for a period of time without word. He's in dislbelief that she's actually sitting there in front of him, and she is very upset to see him in the state that he's in. I am, of course, not doing the story any justice at all with this summarization, so I recommend you go read it!
