My first new proper still image in a long time, this was basically done to showcase my new virtual actress, which I've been developing for over 2 years now.
I call her version 3, and she's not primarily developed for still images, but for animation.
That's why this image hasn't been retouched in Photoshop in any way, except for adding the smoke and my name.
The only other thing that isn't 3d is the background, cropped from an oil painting I did many years ago. I use Maya Unlimited, on an NT pc
