Looks kinda like she has her head at about the same angle as 'Sunday'--a la twister. You have her lips showing in this but of course Groening has her lips so large, you could see them from any angle. All the more kissable, I guess. Maybe they should be there but I like them AWOL here, it's an interesting take. And the rest of her, color, shading & shadows, clothes and especially expression are great. Excellent way of celebrating--a vodka martini and art.
Thanks! The coloring came out really well, I'm pleased with it. BTW there are five colors in the skin tone. I thought about using the lipstick, since this is a formal dress and all that, but finally skipped it.
A vodka martini, humm? I dug around in the 'way-back-files' and found this: [link]
This looks like it needs a story wrapped around it..."tell me no, before I accept your offer and start writing again..." Nicely done. I just noticed her gothic scrungee. The whole thing makes me think of "The Legend Of Hell House". I also like how the candelabra is inside of the picture frame toward the viewer. And the serious look! Maybe these guys would be interesting in some sort of horror story...
