My submission for the Weekly Challenge - I feel like I'm really improving!

My idea of the lady holding the stars is that she's Nyx, the Greek goddess of the night. 
I originally wanted to have the circley space around the stars be a kind of glass orby thing, but I was running out of time Sunday night and didn't think I had enough time to attempt that, so I did this. It was a lot of fun coloring the stars and the hair, and I tried out a whole bunch of new ways to dither. 

Also, I'm aware stars don't have tails... but like, swirly things, man.

I do not like the face, but the sparkles!..

They are vampire stars indeed!

(Am I right?)

Best stars in the challenge. Pity they're not the light source on Nyx though :(

I second what CELS said. Those really add to the piece.

I think the tails are the best parts of this piece, second only to the radiant glow from the bright parts of the yellow star.
