Beautiful character and pose, nice lighting and use of colors as well. The cooler color palette works so well in this, really sets the tone of the piece. Great style and technique

Beautiful image. Really captures the confident but still soft and alluring qualities of the character. Nicely done. :)

Beautiful coloring! I love the lighting and the way it plays out on her shoulder piece there. Nice color choices, too. Though I hope you don't mind a small critique...something's a bit off with the way her spine curves so deeply and stomach juts out. Perhaps it's that the stomach doesn't quite follow the curve of the back and acts as though it were more straight? Maybe it's just me. Regardless, it's a lovely piece.

Thanks Robin, and thanks for the comment. Well it doesn't come to me as something bothering my eye there. I had someone pose for me to check the torsion before I did the work...but of course it doesn't mean I drew it right ;)

Thanks for the feed back Elizabeth.
I was happy to do a Dreamland cover because I love Fantasy. I'm very fond of the Fairy illustrators.
