I found this scan of the cover to some music from the .hack series. Knowing just how much our resident .hack fan loves this character and liking the image in general... I decided to do something with it.
Textures used can be found here: DyingBeautyStock
I also found a quote for it worked in some various brushes in the layers. Time spent was about an hour and a half, I think. I didn't really time it so I'm not sure. lol
And yes WS is best. Black bars of death SUCK so I simply trimmed off the left side for the required regular version upload. :p
