    Cool style, very colorful. Love the tartan design on the cloth. Maybe some more shading and darklining on the bling bits in the front, would help make this area more readable.

    Don't be bummed by the voting, it's very hard to get a 7+ rating, and it's not always just a matter of quality.

    Tks Meph, it is truly a wonderful sculpt.

    No highlights yet; tho I reckon shes a bit overexposed ( Talking about the pictures, not the clothing :p)

    She will be sorted the only way I know how to; a shit load of glazing!

    Second shading done, I also updated my photo setup.
