This is a portrait of a very good friend of mine. She was an internet-buddy from South-Korea. And... I had a little crush on her *><* Hm... I didn't know how to approach her with my love, so I drew this for her. Gosh... she was happy^^ ..... Afterall she only remained a friend :) And I fell inlove with another South-Korean, who's now my current girlfriend.. some story eh?^^ I haven't seen this drawn woman for a long time. But each time I see this drawing.. I remember that time :) it took 3 weeks to build (brushing, smudging and stroking paths in photoshop EVERY day) and the original file is 3000 x 3000 pixels. Still my biggest art ever. Hope u enjoy ;)

Shinfate 2007-05-27 13:27:01 this piece has something really special, I don't know if it's the eyes or the hair or the whole combination, but it's really impressive ^_^ go inspire me more gene!
Def Character 2007-05-28 06:58:20 respect b^_^
Zeph 2007-05-28 23:19:49 well it's absolutely amazing. seriously great job
AIKUZA 2007-05-29 18:55:08 Looks nice, I like the smooth lines and glow dreamy look. Only thing I think is that her neck might seem long. like it isn't attached to the body, cause I see a shoulder sticking out on the right. Maybe on the left yu should see a piece of her other shoulder... that is not colored yet :P, I see it now. Maybe thats why XD.
gene 2007-05-30 16:22:53 I know what u mean, Aikuza :) that part isn't colored, because she's wearing white clothing, and most of the light comes from the left. But unfortunately it creates the effect that the head is not attached to the body indeed, that's right. But hey, thanks for the comments! :D
