I built up the background a little more yesterday. Upon analysis, the weirdest landscape features I have ever seen, and way harder to replicate than it looks. I'll be glazing the sky with a grey blue especially toward the top so that it isn't so yellow. I also built up the negative space and some of her clothing.

Worked on a few facial features and started to darken her hair in some places. 

Background on right. I won't leave the shoulder glow, but I'm going to leave a hint of gold for as long as possible as I work in the landscape. I just like it for some reason.

Bottom left and hands.

As well-meaning as people are, some folks are quick to point out problem areas and give their suggestions. While I very much appreciate feedback, it is safe to say that this is a challenging project that will take some time. Keep in mind that it's very early on, and I'm allowing one year to properly complete it. At this point in the journey, encouragement and questions would be awesome. 

Thanks so much for taking the time to look!
