Portrait from Disneyworld Haunted Mansion

Lillian Gracey...through some research, I discovered her name!
This is one of those stretching portraits you see at the entrance to the Haunted Mansion attraction at Disney World, Florida.
This particular portrait always had my attention mainly because of her expression of total sadness and detached emotion, yet still looking lovely at the same time!
This is a smaller drawing than I usually do.....this is 8" x 10" (20 x 25cm) and it doesn't show the complete scene.....In the Disney portrait, she is walking a tightrope above a snapping alligator.
2B & H Pencils - approx 5 hours to complete

would love to see the rest of this image done. i was actually doing research on this image in particular because i am getting it tattooed across my ribs and i came across your rendition of it and it took my breath away. i think i want to tattoo your version more than the original. Let me know if it's at all possible to have you finish the rest. thanks
