Wow, Sophie, this is great! I love how your hair came out - that's an effect that will be incredibly useful in manips and paintings! And your expression is classic! It's good to see that you're still the best around!
...I adore this whole series. I may snag them all and MIGHT cobble together a composition by the weekend (so the parents can, yet again, yell at me for painting when I ought to be submitting applications for jobs, pfft). As always you're the best inspiration I have for character art!
