Tough by ChrisCold Tough by ChrisCold
posted this some time ago on facebook (along with the sketch)
now uploading wallpapers here on dA.

it actually started off as just a woman wearing a hat without the cigarette but then i saw an awesome photo (this: [link]) and had to add it (besides it needed some color among all the gray)

still kinda became the counter-part to this pic :P :

Outstanding. If it was me, I'd illuminate her a bit more. That cigarette is the main thing that's going on in this picture and I feel that it needs more impact. Maybe add a little glitter in her eye or just slightly strengthen the glowing parts of her face?

That's just me, of course.

this is a great piece. i think the heat could be a little big bigger, looks tiny and the shadow could be more defined, but anyway it's a amazing piece. ;)

I love how her hair fades into the mist and the mysterious feeling the lit ciggertte gives off.

Wow -- this is incredible. I find her beauty and flawless skin to be almost youthful in comparison to the darkness, shades of grey, the ciggarette. Quite an outstanding piece.
