the longer i stared at this, the more i fell in love with it, and the way that you've really captured that mother earth feel with her gentle pose and the natural, earthy textures and images. Her hair immediately reminded me of the skeleton of an autumn leaf, which i really love; it seems to symbolise the core of nature and renewal. beautiful work :+favlove:

wow - she is so gorgeous... I love how her breasts are some of the first things I see... and how they lead me into branches and butterflies. she definitely made me think "mother goddess"! and I'm horribly excited that she's not from one of the typical pantheons. :claps:

This is amazing! There is so much in here! I keep seeing more and more details in it all the time! :wow: How many layers was this- hundreds? :faint:

You have brought all of them together in a way which is really delicate and very subtle, I especially love the way that you've used so many different shades and tones of similar colours here. Also I think in this you have combined the figure and the background perfectly.

Beautiful saiaii, very impressive indeed!

So organic, so ethereal. She is stunning in a dont look to long kind of way. The image embodies a life authoritarian, one who need not ask to be feared or revered. Nicely done!

I think you lose a little bit of the depth with the background on the left and the foreground above her hair so similar...but then again, when you're abstracting like this, who's to say that really matters? =P

lovin it :D

I love how she looks like she is decomposing {death} and so fleshy {life} at the same time. :drool: great interpretation and execution.
