I really wanted to redo my earlier Katie Holmes, because it really didn't do justice to her. So here is Autumn Katie, with a warm scarf around her neck and a striped shirt. I really like it, except for glaring symmetry problems with her face. I noticed them toward the end and I spent almost half an hour trying to correct it, but alas, it may have been for the worse in some spots. Her lips/teeth are slightly off because I still have trouble with red/pink colors, and the shading on her shirt is a little too light in places. But overall... it may be one of my best. Scanned on the Epson for better quality, although the reflection on the hair lightened it and added the shadows in the background. Force-cropped too, so come see the original some time! It's cute :-D
