Pretty young girl

I like this picture a lot and thought it would be a great candidate for a smudge...it turned out to be heavier than I thought...Had lots of trouble with all those different tones. Have a try, I am certain you will be much more successful than me...

Re: Pretty young girl

Well vampires have made a lot of noise of late (yeah; I know it isn't Halloween), so thought I would do something slightly different then the norm.
