Well done....

P.S. I would really love to see this same piece re-done from a photo with allot stronger side lighting on the subject...

The best part of this piece are the highlights.....
i was itching to see the whole side of her face fully lit up and bleached out....

Your getting the beginnings of what i would call a painterly style....(you have a fair bit of natural tallent.)
I like your stuff....(and for some reason i always feel a yearning for more... its almost like i can feel your at a "water shed" or something and that your about to explode or something...
Sorry to crap on..perhaps i should have just said cool pic...LOL keep it up....2 hours im envious)

Lovely! If you applied a bit of blur to the layers of skin tones except for the bottom layer, it would give a more realistic, fluid feel to the skin. Nice work!

BTW, thank you for the flattering comment on my Django pic!

Yeah, have played a little with that. Problem is tho that there isnt so much layers as a bunch of disorganised shapes all next to each other :D

Know what you mean. Have you tried the Alt+click feature? Alt+click switches between the layers, so once you've bitmap traced an image (make sure "stack scans" is clicked), Alt+click between layers rather than moving them, leaving them stacked. I love the bitmap trace feature, but the drawback is every object has millions of nodes even after simplifying, which can be frustrating (processors working on overdrive-ha!). On my portraits, I actually prefer to line/curve tool hand trace the tones of skin (less frustrating nodes), and using layers of gradients, the Alt+click feature, and so far, most of the portraits were originally black and white, which seems to be easier to trace and then render the colour to the objects. I learn something new each time I work with Inkscape. Before I started Inkscaping I hadn't really done any vector art since most of the progs had such steep learning curves and frustrating tools, but Inkscape is a wonderful tool! You might also enjoy Rotoscope (found on Source Forge or Freshmeat). I did a few Rotos, tweaked the colour in Photoshop, and then bitmap traced them in Inkscape, which came out nicely. Looking forward to seeing more of your work!

Its a manual trace, rather than the autotrace. and my workflow is too disorganised to have nice orderly layers :D

gives a pretty good example of how the images are built up. slightly deceptive tho as some of the first shapes shown there are some of the last I draw, where I put big blocks of color in behind every thing else to fill in any gaps :D

Very nice vector. I do like the shading style, though in some areas it doesn't feel as fluid as it should.

agreed, i should really put some more work into it, but it was getting late and I was hungry :)
I might rework some of the areas a bit.
