It was supposed to be a normal manip, looking totally different than it does now :D but the idea of using seriously my new tablet (for the first time) crossed my mind while I was creating it. There's no particular message about this work, only my imagination was making me painting new things on and on and here it is :) I smudged the reference dress completely and painted the hair, make-up and the swan from scratch. I used only a reference photo to paint the beak properly.
Actually I had a lot of fun with painting with a tablet, it's much easier than I thought. Or at least it's much easier than drawing with a pencil :)
