I used *lucias-stock
as a reference for pose and a couple peices of jewelry. Everything is painted by hand except for a couple things I used brushes for, and the basic part of the background which is a purchased resource.... so thanks to `spiritsighs
for the bubbles/fog/light rays - you are awesome! Everything else is my own painstaking work with the help of the reference photo.
