Don't really know what category to put this under... oh well.

This was a practice for my touch-up skills. I figured it was perfect since I never seem to give Rue/Kraehe any love, and there was a strap simply begging to be removed.
From the original, I smoothed out the edges of the hair, made the face more symmetrical by shadowing most of the rest of the right half of her face, did a skin touch-up, and removed her strap, fixing the edge of the dress along the way. I was thinking of doing something to her lips to make them look more like Kraehe, but as it is they ground the whole thing and make it look real (aside from being gorgeous already).

It was really fun, and a challenge. (I've never had to deal with these kinds of shadows before.) I'll probably do more in the future when I find something that catches my eye. In the meantime, I'll go back to coloring.

Hope you like it, LyTao!

EDIT: Fixed the cheek. It was really bugging me. Don't know why I didn't catch it earlier!
