What advice would you give someone starting this project? take your time. i was in a rush so i messed up her eyes - i should have used a pencil instead of a marker until i got her eyes right. also the size of the image was too small - will make larger next time. i also got lazy and just sat there and colored the background. it was relaxing like when i was a child i just sat there and pulled out a pencil to color.
