I love the hair, you've put detail into every strand which is a painful and tedius project. Nice work though!

Thanks pal, I tinted this in ps with the color balance, pic was done from promo photo of Mimi, thats her..., shes managed by Paul Geary who also manages the rock band Godsmack, Im coloring this right now (almost done)and will be adding final design and some text after I finished with that, going with a zodiac theme...Fire Child in reference to her star sign Leo (a fire sign),and she does look like a fantasy character out of a movie(Conans Mother), shes done alot of modeling... thanks again for the nice comments and your interest Ishan...

Hey Tom! This is fabulous pencil work! Did you use coloured pencil or tint it in PS? She has a very beautiful face, with some nice details, the hair is truly amazing! Is this what Mimi looks like - did you work from a photo? She's slightly reminiscent of Conan's mother in the first movie... Is this the extent of the image, or do you plan on adding more going on around her? Superb work!

The shading is so good Tom, I really envy your patience. Really good touches with the eyes, and the pentagram headband. That hair must have taken you ages to draw - always good to see your new work Smile
