Harvest Elf

 This is a Murphy's Law card.  Everything that could go wrong did.  I had ink blobs and smudges.  Worst of all  after I finished coloring her face I moved on to color her shoulders.  Thinking I picked up E00, I didn't.  I picked up Y20.  I immediately realized that her face was skin colored and her body was yellowish.  I took my blender and erased as much yellow as possible then went over it with E00.  It was still a little too yellow.  I decided to add a small amount of yellow to the face to compensate.  I think it turned out okay. I felt like this was definitely above my ability level, but I am so happy that I completed it.  The image I used was Harvest Elf from Aurora Wings.  I colored the image with Copic markers.

Copics:  B21, BV000, 00, 02, 04, C00, 0, 1, E00, 11,  34, 43, 99, G19, 20, 21, 24, 28,
