waow, I am stunned~! I don't think Ala has ever been so gorgeous~!!
The winning pose+expression goes a long way towards that, of course :} You lineless style gives her that 3-dimensionality that brings her to life ~ The line details from the sketch, such as the muscles in her arm and back and design of her kit, still come out beautifully in these paints. Love the purple blades, and the gleam on her skin, so many little things I'll be appreciating as I find them in this magnificent portrait,
