A Commission for featuring his detective Jill Benner and Mikal Freitag together for the first time. Investigating a crooked contractor, the two sleuths are rendered unconscious when a heavy drainage pipe cleaves their craniums.
A beautiful piece, well structured and rendered! Lighting and shadows are just right. I particularly like the blonde- hair and its movement is teriffic, facial expression is great. I particularly like her blue shiny top and the way it conforms to her body pose, rippling slightly and attrattractively shiny! Leggings are likewise conforming and attractive.
The shoes look used and a little grubby, which is great stuff for a snoop! I would like to know a little about the shoes and how the different effects on left and right were achived, also the blue top and leggings- what products are they all? What product is the hair?
Ropes around the pipe look good too- what are they? One looks wuite loose!
Very stunning effect all around! Only minor gripes would be that theblonde, though struck powerfully from behind, appears to be falling backwards: the other girl has a nice facial expresion but seems to be wearing a pvc dress, though very pretty! (I know, catsuits are common for snoops though!)
