Work In Progress—October Pin-up Girl

I haven't posted lately because I've been busy on a couple of projects, but those are both winding down now, and I'm gearing up for the promotional part of some special offers for the month of October. I haven't done a pin-up girl in quite some time, so I thought this would be a good excuse, and, of course, this being October and all, I've decided to give her a Halloween theme. I should be back Monday or Tuesday with the finished results, but for now, here is a sneak preview of (for lack of a better title) the October Pin-up Girl.

This is the cleaned up sketch that I scanned in to work from.
Here is the digital version, which is about halfway finished.

Hey Robert! this is really nice! although the expression of the girl in the sketch seems to me more attractive, have a bit more of malice, of course, you know better than me what you want to do, so I'm sure you'll do great the final work!

Hey Eugenio!
Thank you. Yes, that's true, I think that is the hardest part, getting the nuances of the hand-drawn sketch translated over when working in vectors. It takes forever (at least it feels like it) to reclaim the original freshness, but it can be done.
