Let's say it's sort of a valentine pic.. anyway, an idea I had in mind for some time. Still practising lights and colours, as you can see, I think I made some progress.
Done in Photoshop CS2, no direct refs used, though I checked some ladybugs photos and my own hand for lights.

you have no idea how much time the bloody hair and skintone on her face took me.. hope you'll like it
oh, did I mention I love freckles? Well, I do.
