Mainly just a visual effect and light reflection. Plus I wanted to add some tears (as in ripping, not crying) in her eyes because of the whole swiss cheese thing. I don't know, I thought it was a good idea at the time apparently. I'm not even very impressed by this drawing, I have a new one I'm working on with Chryssie in it that's makes this look like a 2 year old's finger painting.
So your new one makes your old one look like most of the stuff on this site makes my stuff look like (doesn't bother me, I never took a lesson, nor learned to do any better). With the quality of this work, I guess I will need to watch you so I can see it's superior.
lol thanks. Yeah I go back and look at some of my old stuff and compare it to the newer ones I've drawn and just said "Wow, what a difference". I too have never taken a lesson, all self taught, mostly from boredom. I have some upcoming stuff, I'm just taking my time with it because I've been working a lot lately, but expect more from me!
