I thought about that Jordan, but the gradient technique that I wanted to use to light it up caused too much loss in contrast (and reduced the gloss effect).

Danny, you got a cute little girl. So many nice entries. Mine is probably not very "artsy" when compared to others. If details are requested, just ask.
