Amazing picture. I love this. I've just read past this bit in the book. A very good interpretation of the girl. In my mind I had he hair loosly bunches up in a bun and more of a dirty blonde, but I really like the look of this one.
I love the way you've accented the "repulsive" yellow flowers. Very cool
The book was beyond anything i ever read, even though i dont read that much, but still... Great art btw...love the contrast between the dark and light areas and how u made the people in the background look pretty much identical.
