can i give you a suggestion? can you tone down the pattern on the top? it seems to be flattening out the chest area, and since the pattern is so intricate, it's drowning out the shading underneath the bust making it look very flat. and at first you don't realize that she is leaning forward, until you look at other parts of her body to gesture that. I just thought i tell you. but i love the detail. no doubt about that. and the outfit itself.
Beautiful work. Great design on the clothing (I like the half skirty-thingy and the cape) as well as the armour and armament. The pose is something I've never seen before (which is good, one can easily get tired of certain poses). The colors are vibrant and gives it a great feel (especially the red hair). I gotta say: I love this piece.
