WOW....fabulous results!!!! Another great thread full of talent. Wonderful photos Danny...both Nathaniel and Ali. Good quality and makes such a difference.

Done in Painter...created a bg first. New layer - Cloning/Blocked in with RonE's Block-in Brush, blended with his wet in wet brush. New Layer - Some more blocking in with Acrylics Captured Bristle, blended with Just Add Water.
New Layer- Cloners/Wet Oils (low opacity) - probably blended more? New Layer - Hair/Oils/Camel Fine Hair (which I notice left little star like impressions?!). Couldn't quite tell where her hair length ended so just added more colours to the bottom.

Dropped all layers and then did her eyes with the Captured Bristle. Some Dodging and burning and layer adjustments.
