welp, i finally finished this! took a few months on and off, too bad i don't keep track of hours... anyway, each and every detail was hand painted - even the jewels were individually painted... yes, i am very crazy. i figured i should do something complicated and intricate, and really get everything detailed. oh yeah, this is a self portrait, based on a photo of myself of course. everything in the painting has symbolic meaning (don't ask what though ;)

close up | date finished - 03.28.04 | medium - photoshop | original size - 11x24 inches (3300x7200 pixels)
prints are available through my website

Anyone out there read the Amber and Ashes selection from Dragonlance? Aside from the eye colour and the wings this looks like how I pictured Mina.
