The wow-europe servers have been down all day so I've had a bit of time going spare - thought I'd post up the result

Nice bit of smudging NancyJ, I especially like the eye lashes

What? No WoW?! Now that's harsh!
Nice work, especially with the nice glow to her skin and your treatment of her hair- exquisite. There is a patch of hair near where it parts that looks a bit over smudged/softened to me, it just needs a little more texture.
Hmm yeah...tutorial?

Re: Portrait

Based on Nancy's original post about "servers" maybe she is not currently available. I really would like to keep this post open for some discussion because I do like what she has created. Do you feel this was done in a combination of photoshop and painter or just photoshop? I would agree that it looks like smudge was used. Any thoughts about the brush? I've been reading posts for sometime now and have not seen something like this from Nancy before...it appears she has been expanding. I wonder what you have been reading, studing...any guidance would be nice....

Hehehe Skydog... WoW-europe is a World of Warcraft server, so I'd say Nancy is still very much online and probably going through withdrawls by now if the server is still down lol!

Sorry I didnt reply sooner - been feeding my addiction - only 30 levels to heh

In regard to answering those questions - I could, but then there wouldnt be much discussion then
Since you all asked so nicely, I've been working on an in depth tutorial but until I'm done, I'd love to watch the discussion play out.
