I find her beautiful... but she would eat me up wouldn't she?

Amazing, as always.

How long did it take to color this? I ask because I too have Gimp but haven't really dabbled with it. :-)

Well I do things backwards compared to other artists so my color stage is a bit different. Most do color then shadows, or color and shadows at the same time, I do the shadows and then the color, then I paint on top. So from initial color to finishing was about 4 hours, but when I started the color I'd already done a couple hours of fiddling with the values.

That's kind of how I do it actually, I usually am using markers though. :-)

Yaaaay! :D She is so pretty and mysterious! I love it! :heart: She is so awesome! I love the ambient lighting and the particles floating about in the air!

Dreads on a sphinx = best thing ever.

This is lovely! I really like the pose and composition.
