Them colours on the clouds are wonderful, great work practicing there. Funnily, NMM herself looks much flatter in comparison, even her armor... which fits oddly well, because of who she is and how it does feel like she should be matte and "drink up" the colour and light as opposed to shine with lots of highlights and stuff.

That moons. And the tail inserted between them.

Looks great, but, one thing... the tail placement seems... way off.

It was a very quick study and I was focused strictly on color elements, so its not surprising there are some minor details like that.

I completely understand. It's was just a funny observation.
