Here is another small update for those of you who are watching and following along. I have added a few more light layers to the skin to increase depth and value. I also darkened the hair a bit and added a few stray wisps of hair. That might get changed later. Yes, I realize her right eye still needs some darkening to match the other eye ;-) ....that's what I will work on next.
Update: This portrait was finished and delivered...regretfully I did not photograph the finished version. You just have to believe me when I say it turned out beautiful and was well received. ;-)
