Thankyou very much!

haha it depends if you think they're wings or folds of a big old-fashioned bow on the back of her dress. Laughing out loud

Very delicate piece, lovely. And your use of textures is really good, you have a fine control over the medium. Congratulations (again).

It's good and all, but uh, it kind of looks like her wings are coming out of her butt.

Art at its best.
