    Gorgeous Val and this has a fabulously pin-up vintage feel to it.
    I love the luminous skin, textures of satin and lace…pairing of red and black.
    Beautifully feminine curves!

  • Thankyou Jaeda :)
    It needs a title any ideas?
    You are such a poetic being I can’t think of anyone better to ask :)

    This is gorgeous!! It’s like I could reach out and touch it and feel all the different textures of the fabrics!

  • Thankyou Lynsye
    Thats exactly what I was trying to explore here! I’m so used to just exploring the face and I had so much fun with the textures on this one

    Thankyou Maria
    I never realised I would enjoy recreating the texture of fabrics as much as I do skintones
