Speedpaint - 3 hours, Adobe Photoshop CS2 & Tablet ... it was a nice change from the massive thing I'm doing otherwise (Escape)... so ya. Had fun.

Update: This is now available as a print at Artists for Charity - support a good cause.

Update 2: 01.04.2009: No longer available from artists for charity (discontinued there) so now available in my prints store.

References: Lady is `lockstock
I used a book on constellations I have (Field Guide to Astronomy) to draw the constellation.

Brushes:
Textures by =Barbiedoll on her site, Emerald de Leeuw.com
Ptolemy's drawing scanned from a book a long time ago, part of my personal brushes set.

EDIT :giggle:
I spent an extra bit of time to make her more sci-fi, `memod suggested the background be changed, and he was right! Now she's floating among the stars, an alien-mermaid Zodiac: Pisces.
