Right, because characters are never allowed to be aged, they must stay exactly as they were at creation forever. The artist drew her older than she is in the show. If you haven't already, please.....get over it.
Thanks! I'm glad this one came out okay. She was originally a bit darker - more of a silhouette, but I brightened her a bit, coz she's supposed to be the focal-point after all. I could have made this pic simpler, but the client's description of the fireworks in the background made me want to do a glowy, backlit sort of colour-scheme.
