Holy crap - how did you make the texture in her dress? Everything about this is absolutely gorgeous, by the way :D

Thank you so much! I think in this work exactly the texture of the paper helped to this impression.

Lovely job with the shading in her hair and dress! The way you've done her hair is reminiscent of fire, which (intentional or not) is a rather perfect bit of symbolism here. :)

I love the colors you've used in this piece, and I'm particularly impressed with how you've used them to shade the jug--wow! I'm not quite sure if the horns behind her are supposed to appear connected, as with a crescent moon, and the edges of the fingernails on her right hand I think contrast a bit too strongly with the rest of her hand. Overall though, you've done a beautiful job rendering this lovely subject. :D Well done, and thank you for sharing with us!

Thank you so much!
btw, Horns symbolize the cow and it's as symbol of the Imbolc, not crescent moon:)

You're most welcome. :)

Also, that certainly makes a lot more sense, given how you've incorporated some other very specific symbolism in this piece. Thanks for the clarification! :D
