Been a while longer to post than usual, after trying some experiments on the image here.
Tried to capture a high degree of realism using Poser facial textures and lighting, combined with painted hair and cloth postwork.
There were many times when I wondered why I had started this, and if it would ever get finished. So finally, here's the end result of many weeks work and a seriously worn out graphics tablet.
Dedicated to my family and friends for all their help, suport and endless patience.
Many thanks for looking.
