Aww, she looks so sweet and hesitant. I love the pose, it seems so natural and human, like the portrait of a real person, the soft background texture really makes it pop. fabulous image!

Ooooh - I'm sorry, I have been far more of a hack than that (and some of the best comic artists use physical models).  I was 
so amazed at how real she felt that I (letting my jealousy at a far more talented artist cloud my thinking) assumed that somehow you accomplished that through some supernatural instinct (even though rationally I know that even Leonardo DeVinci was never able to pull that off).
Don't feel lucky - feel proud!  So many artists copy work in a way that looks hackneyed and awkward.  Part of why I was so easily  convinced is that every stroke and shade felt like you. You didn't just copy - you absorbed (heh - Ernest Hemmingway once said good artists copy, great artists STEAL - you went a step beyond stealing).
It was a pleasure discovering it.

Happy to oblige - of course "stealing" art is harder than it sounds - Shakespeare did it a lot(He was the third person to do Romeo and Juliet), so did Ray Charles (Georgia on my mind is not his song, but can you imagine anyone else singing it now?).  The key is making it your own.

Great pic! Such a lively feel to that subtle motion, and the fabric folds are brilliant. It's such an alive image- reminds me of some of the 80s promo art I used to see for various anime series.
