I wanted to take a statue and make it human. Then I thought further about the process and decided upon this piece of art. It shows her peeling back the layers of the statue to reveal the flesh underneath.
This was also an exercise in lighting as it is one common issue I tend to have.
That being said the following links aided in the process of this piece. [link]

For the upper background.
The rest was digitally painted with tablet.
