This looks just like a picture by Tang Yuehui called "Lizards". Check it out: [link] I actually really like both versions. :-)

Actually both our versions were referenced from the same celebrity wallpaper but her colors look more dynamic. The lizard and hand were added :)

Beautiful Portait, my friend. I love the distinctive gesture of the nape and the head. The black dress out of velvet creates an atmosphere of the soft seduction. The texture of the feathers, of the pearls and the folds of the dress very beautifully are drawn. I marvel over your wonderful work ,Desmond.
