Thanks for the detailed comment, Torthane. I appreciate it very much!
You're right in saying Arwen's eyes are a little off. Apparently, some of my initial shading on the left eye got lost as I deepened the shadows, and I didn't catch it. It was only brought to my attention after
the piece was matted and shrink-wrapped! As a consequence, I couldn't fix it, no matter how badly I wanted to.
Shows you just how much I have to learn, right?
