Working with another painting, I accidentally found a way to interact with textures to achieve an horror feeling to the picture, so this is the result. She's like an imp or devil coming from a nightmare, I finished it on time for Halloween last year. We could say it's a speedpainting, 5-6 hours more or less in photoshop.
