This picture is so impressive to me, I'd like to add some perspective. I've been a member for 12 years, started watching a few artists way back when, but never started filling out a favorites list until recently. Also, I've never been very socially active online, especially less so as I've gotten older. Last comment I ever posted on anyone's art was way back in 2008. Congratulations! Your rendition of Mononoke is so EPIC, it stirred a web introvert to comment. I must echo tranki-zieleniack's comment by saying:

Best, most BA Mononoke ever!!!!

P.S. I don't think I've ever seen someone do eyes or a stare as intense as what you have pulled off in this piece. It's breathtaking.

Who took a photo of your imagination? What godly hands made the saturation and values so perfect? I can stare at this for hours and notice a new awesome  aspect every minute. You inspire me to draw and never give up :)

Just finished re-watching Mononoke after a long time.
An instant after that i opened this picture.
And while I'm watching at this picture two words are spinning in my head: you totally "nailed it"!

This smoothed, blurred background which add some volume. Amazing brushes that you used to draw fur which looks very natural, live and fluffy. Of course this lighting, colours, saturation. This amounts and quality, precision of details which I'm sure cost you a lot of time and effort. Even this bloodstain on her lips... It's definitely a masterpiece!
But it's all irrelevant.
All this loses all meaning before one thing. And this thing is - that eyes! And not even an eyes but this LOOK!
This look makes it all real! Makes her real! Like she's staring right at me!
And besides that it's perfectly deliver/passing on/reflect her character! The way she look at humans, the way she look at me! The look filled with contempt, hatred yet full of pride and dignity.
This is she! By all means!

This is the  best art of the Mononoke Hime I've ever seen. And I'll dare to assume that it's the best picture of those that I will ever see.
Thank you for giving me this opportunity! Heart 

I'm just glad that there are such people as you on this planet who makes people like me happy! Happy cry (Tears of joy)
