Thanks! I was initially tempted to focus on the plunging neckline and giant poofy skirt, but decided to go for something more dynamic and less expected. I'm glad you like it!

Thanks so much! I've been trying to incorporate more motion and interesting compositions to these pieces. The straight-on ones are often dramatic and effective, but I think it's important to push oneself, right?

Thanks! I drew her eyes using a different process than before, and I was happy with the results (and it took much less time).

Yeah, I LOVE that harlequin style of eye makeup! A nice change from the usual uber-smoky eyes!

Oh I know. Gorgeous. I'm such a stage-makeup whore it's depressing.

Haha, thanks! Someone else mentioned the combination of her femininity and her edge, which I think is exactly what I find so inspiring about her.
