This painting was done for the gallery of Sleeping Wizards that's planned at Prophecy.  (I'm not entering the competition btw)

I've been working on this one a lot longer than I should have, and really hope it's come out looking like Jo!  I've been looking at it/her for too long now, and can't tell.  :~P  And I spent a ridiculous amount of time on the necklace!  *cough*a day*cough*  I tried medieval, I tried Tudor (ducks shocolate ).  spoonjosh , I know we talked about giving her LOTR style jewellery, but it just didn't work.  So I ended up just going with something simple, which I'm not entirely happy with, but it was the only thing that went with the rest of the painting.  :~\

Hope you all enjoy it, anyway.  ;~)

27 days till I fly to the USA!!! *screams*

Oh yes that looks like her! The larger version is more obvious too. You say you spent an entire day on her necklace? May I ask you what your art piece dimensions are in PS? Was it very large to work with since you're printing it?

The painting is A3 (11.7" × 16.5"), so yeah, it's pretty big. It would get to 300+meg and I'd have to condense the layers! Then it would get big again...and so on. :~P The necklace she's wearing now didn't take me a day to do (that took me maybe 10 mins!); it was all the trial efforts before this finished one that took so long. There was a Tudor-y looking one that had loads of pearls, and an intricate LOTR style one that I really liked cos I was able to work in snakes and gems for the house colours, but they just didn't match the rest of the painting.

I'm happy to hear you think it looks like her!! :~)

omg, 300 MB *and* you had to condense the layers? You must have a good computer. I think mine slows down past 125MB so I never draw for print unfortunately! But wow, that's a lot of work I assume.

Oh, you should post the necklaces you drew so we can all see :)
