I hope you like this painting, as it was so much fun to paint the little details and as I personally really like the result!
Usually I upload those beautiful perfect women at dA, but to be honest, for me it is much more fun to paint something rough, using texture brushes and very raw lines - which does not really suit my older artwork's "fine art style", but it's the way of painting I feel most comfortable with by now.
I used to do very clean artworks, planning every single detail I wanted to add - but the final result turns out so stiff by using this method.
- I guess I prefer the rough look - it's so much more lively :)

About the painting: As I already mentionned, I have a weakness for painting beautiful people, especially women, and although only few people know, I have an even bigger weakness for painting plants, funguses, well for everything that can grow on the ground, on trees or on human skin. :D - Usually it's not really possible to combine both, that's one of the main reasons why I enjoyed painting this one so much, as it contains everything I really LOVE to paint (except of dresses - I should do a Fullbody out of it XD)

Technical: Finished in about 5 hours, no refs used. Thanks to Jonas De Ro and Sakimichan - their brush sets are amazing!

Haha, yep, I'm a big fan of that game and was playing it, when I painted this one, so it's definitely inspred by it :D
I mainly use the brushes of Jonas De Ro, he's selling them, it's worth buying them :)
