Here is the finished portrait. You can see the initial sketch here. I'm happy with the way this turned out. The photo reference was pretty good for being a candid shot, and after some initial fumbling around, I feel that I nailed the likeness.

Lively and energetic portrait. The orange background is a nice touch- it seems to add to the charm.
