UPDATE!
Ok, one day later... I've worked on it a smidge more, again, felt like sharing.  Probably hard to tell what's been added, but whatever.  Cheesy


----Original post----
I was sitting in my living room last night, got kind of bored, and ended up sketching this picture based off of the Girl with a Pearl Earring movie box.  Anyway, I'm pretty happy with the result and felt like sharing! (obviously this looks nothing like Scarlet Johansson, but whatever)

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

To be totally honest, when I saw the picture of this in new projects my first thought was "hey, it's Scarlett." seriously, I think you did a really good job, I love the colors. Cheesy

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

That is more than 'just a sketch'. It is fantastic. Brilliant use of color and I love that you just used the picture for inspiration rather than to do an exact rendering! That is art Grin
