Oh gosh, sunflic! I LOVE this! I especially like how shiny her shoes look, and the flow of her mane.
I apologize if you've answered this before, but do you mind if I ask you about some of your techniques? What made you decide to build your gradients with solid colors here instead of using the gradient tool? I've seen in your other work that you've used gradients. Was this the request of the commissioner, or something you decided to do yourself? In any case, it looks awesome!
I LOVE the colors here. The whole piece has a nice warm look!
