Used Danny's Pencil set: Soft Detail Brightness to finish the image off after doing a Highkey that was additionally processed by Sharp Control.

Completely done in Artrage2
Since it's 1268x1702 px it was a pain to get it below 100kb.
It seems a bit blurry due to compression so you can find a better quality version here (767kb).

Enjoy
