Really enjoyed this one.

- Created separate layers for new background, eyes, eyebrows, lips, skin texture and hair.

- On the first I softened the statue and deleted the sky area to remove any softening bleed.

- Borrowed my partners eyebrows, eyes and lips to texturise and colour the relevant areas.

- Created a skin texture sphere to cover the entire face.

- Played for hours adjusting the above layer opacities and tweaking areas.

- Inspired but Andante's wonderful version, I tried but eventually gave up on creating the hair myself. Borrowed Sarah Michelle Gellar's instead and adjusted opacity to give an appearance of being draped over the hand, thereby removing the need to work on the arm.

That's about it. Hope you like.

i think it needs a tad more contrast, it looks a bit faded. but other than that: amazing job! the best i've seen so far.

Very nice. Eyes, lips and hair look great. Love the tiny mole of her neck too.
