Empress by TLCook Empress by TLCook
Something I've been kicking around for a while. I finally got to that bless-ed point where I can't stare at it anymore, so voila! Now I can finally get back to some birds...

Edit: Version 2! I'd posted up round 1 a while back, but I wanted to submit this to the Expose open call, and I knew I could make it swell-er. Now with bonus facial expression! :)

I love the detail work and the graphic-ness of it. :) Something about the hands seems unfinished - like the base form is there but the rendering didn't go all the way compared to the non-skin parts. That's a minor quibble though - fantastic piece!

Wow, nice work on the scales!! I also really love the way the hair flows! Although I think it would look more like hair with a few more of the bright highlighted spots.

Wow, this is really pretty!...and seriously detailed. I would NOT have drawn that many scales, I think I would've given up long after the first hundred or so. :XD:

*long BEFORE the first hundred, not after. :facepalm:

You may be crazy, but it's that crazyness that's makes things like this! Seriously, it's amazing! :D
