This portrait of Megan, a former Guess Jeans model, was painted for ~Eternities-End as part of the Sketch Challenge that I ran in 2006
Chuffed with the final result of this - possibly the nearest to photorealism I've gotten. Especially pleased with the hair and sunglasses.
No fancy brushes or plug-ins were used - just the default brushes and tools.
