I was looking at the image thinking something was missing then realized in the story she is law enforcement so she needed her badge and patches. I think they do help.

Still not happy with the background because of how dark it is. When I get time I'll try to construct something lighter.

I have a few folks I use now but before I always had good luck with the classified section.
I'd first draw a stick figure and objects with the same skill as one might find on the refrigerator in a kindergarten classroom. Draw arrows to each object and add a description of what it should look like when drawn by someone with talent, save as jpeg and email to an artist with a classified on the deviantart site. Never disappointed and never paid more than fifty-dollars. Were I rich and did this I'd be a jerk, but I'm not rich and most of the artists were art students and appreciated the money.

My daughter isn't a bad artist so I thought I'd use her if I ever can finish something. Deviantart certainly has some good artist though.
