First artwork post

Hi everyone,

My first post of artwork -- but no reason to be gentle, I'm pretty thick-skinned about this stuff, so don't hold back, let me know what you think.

This is just a doodle I've been playing around with, based on a photo of Chiaki Kuriyama (you may remember her from Kill Bill vol 1) I found somewhere or other. I've done a lot of mucking about, rubber-stamping the background plants, as well as misc subtle touch-ups here and there, topped off with FP Organic Edges. But it still needs something -- suggestions are welcome.

Very crafty!

What strikes me is the (too large, IMO) patch of "brightness" near the bottom center of the image. Is there anything from the original image you could splice in gracefully?

I like how you did the facial and hair manipulation.

Thank you, Danny, a good call. I agree: the "Great White Space" needs something. I guess I can try putting some plants there. Or -- oh, hey, this may take some work, but maybe I can put a weapon in her hands? Actually, that may work . . . that or a bunny . . .
