Here is the finished product. I actually did a portrait of Claire and i thought it looked terrible so i did the one you see there on a separate sheet of drawing paper and surgically inserted it into her japanese moly. I didn't want to take up much more room or do something similar to what i did in Aaron's book, so i decided to make a smaller portrait of myself. I continued Julie's leaves and eventually added myself as a giant balloon being carried by Claire's hand ( one of the photos Claire included in her reference shots was a giant photo of her hand holding a pen, so i felt like Claire really wanted someone to draw her hand) I have no clue how all it all ties together except in it's randomness, which always ties everything in. I hope you like it Claire and i hope everybody else does as well.
