Part of the theme was inspired by Rodrigo Luff's end of the year project he posted years ago on deviantART.
The lady in the drawing is Amber Rose Revah, a talented actress. You may know her from the movie "From Paris With Love". Such a small role for her, but she made a lasting impression and I've been following her her ever since. The good news is that she actually likes this piece, so I now have an extra dip in my strut, so to speak.
I'll do more like these in the near future...with better consistency.
