Some of you may recognize the Feb different strokes subject. I'm a little late getting to it but it was such a great reference I did not want to skip it totally!

You know what they say Gayle...."Better late than never!"
And that goes double in this case. :)

well worth the wait :wink2:
I love the softness in her hair and the colours :thumbsup:

Thanks so much Kathleen and Kathrin! It just came together rather quickly today. I see a couple of things I want to tweak but overall it's done with the couple of exceptions!

Looks great, I especially like her hair!

Her hair is extremely beautiful. I should try this one, too.

Beautiful Gayle, this is such a cute reference, I have saved it too. The shape of the chin is bothering me a little, it looks very circular I think, with no angle. Giving it a slight angle will look better I think. Otherwise great lighting and lovely outcome.:)

Thanks very much Deb, Phoenix & Nithya! It really is a great reference and hard to resist.

Beautiful work. I love the colours and modeling of the girl.

Great work Gayle. Nice comp and execution. The title of the thread made my heart skip a beat.:eek: You have to be careful with the male collective subconscious.

LOL The title did make me wonder. But anyway, you did a wonderful job!

Great job on the hair, Gayle.

P.S. I knew right away this was going to be a Different Strokes, I just wondered if it would be the same one I'm late with. But it's not...

The warmth of her hair and the delicate flower are beautiful. This is great work.

Thanks so much Arlene!
Chris you really made me laugh! I guess I didn't think of that!
You too Michelle??
Shirl - You'd better get to it! They always come up with some great references!
Dan - I appreciate your comments!

I remember this reference from a while ago. I'm glad you shared - gave me an ahhhhhhh moment - so cute!! Love how you used blue in her hair.

It was, and is adorable....I wanted to try it also. You did a wonderful job!!
