She's Hearing Voices - Bloc Party
I saw this picture posted in the Picture corner by pookiebear21 at vexels.net, and I knew I had to do it! It was just too beautiful.

I tried to do the comic style again, but it didn't really work with this picture, so I did some semi-realism with a hint of lineart; The hair was a nightmare to do, but I'm proud to say that I didn't stroke path any of it, besides the whisps.

Oh, and I named the title after another Bloc Party song since I'm so hyped about going to their concert next month X).

EDIT
Wow, a DD! :D <3

Thank you so much lilvdzwan for suggesting and Jules1983 for featuring this!

"This has always been the most beautiful vexel I have seen. Nothing else compares to this. The way Shelley works with light, shadows and colours really shows how talented she is. She has an eye for the smallest detail, look at the hair, eyebrows, eyelashes and the way she added very subtle lines just where it's needed. Perfect!"

The hair is perfect. It's so soft, it looks like I could just run my fingers through it. Vector doesn't usually lend so much vivid texture.
