Done for a contest on DeviantART.
I was extremely frustrated with my arcsoft program when I was in the process of working on this pic. I accidentally saved the pick as a jpeg while I was was in the procedure of coloring and oooh!!! My bright shiny colors were all washed out and the shine in the hair started to compress. I'm such an idiot... My program TWICE even froze on me and because I don't like to save in order to prevent compression. I lost all my work in the process.
