Huge fan of this movie. Biggest Fan

OK, let's add this to my :+fav:s, you to my watch list and... oh, hey, I still need to make a comment for ProjectComment's 52 Week Comment Challenge, so why not make one here?

Let me begin that it is absolutely b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l! The face, with all its details is truly amazing, the texture (interestingly, it still makes her look very pale - which is good), the distribution of red (all the right places), shading, anatomy (as far as my unskilled eye can tell), light reflections and, finally, a big glowing green eye (the pupil isn't even black and I don't think she has green makeup around her eyes) I cannot look away from.

And then... then, there is her hair, which seemed to have its own life in the movie and is also quite vivid in here. There's that eerie glow (very well combined with the background and the blur on the outer edges), making it radiating white, not just white. Can't go wrong with eerie when it comes to fairies.
The hair is the only part I could see to be improved, it seems a bit sketchy. But what would that mean for the glowing effect, especially if you consider how much of the blur plays into it... and of course, this would also have an effect on where the focus lies: Are the facial features strong enough to keep the focus shift?

Anyway, really well done. There is no perfection, but if there was, this would come really close to it.

Oh, and you don't have to worry about her being older than in the movie. It's brilliant.
