Here is the final image!
You may notice that the background changed quite a bit. I actually spent many hours working on a forest background but scrapped it when it was battling with the foreground.
I guess it is true that less is more... That is an advantage with digital-the background can be its own layer. I want to experiment more in Painter but it is a slow process. I secretly painted the crow by hand.
The design of the dress is inspired by the late 1700s (with modern touches.) Think Marie Antoinette pre-Bastille...
