It's taken me two months to finally finish this picture. There's just nothing left to say.

Wow! There's a lot of definite improvements between this and your first picture of Kitsune! Her dress is absolutely gorgeous and I'm amazed at the intricate pattern you made over the dress! I imagine it must've been pretty time-consuming, but DEFINITELY worth the effort. Her skin is very naturally shaded and highlighted, and her tail practically looks real! The background folds are so beautiful, too...

A few little critiques... ^^;; I do wish her hair had the same attention and realism as her tail... The hair on her head seems so flat, especially when compared to her realistic tail... Also, her forearms seem a little too long when compared to the length of the top of her arms. I wish that her body interacted more with the fabric in the background (ie folds coming up over her body slightly), but I think that just comes because the background was drawn after Kitsune was and is just a style thing.

I'm totally amazed by this picture, and you should be very proud of yourself! I'm very curious, what kind of media did you use to make that?

I had thought that her hand needed something, but that idea hadn't dawned on me. Thanks for pointing that out.

What can I say, Jinx? You are one of the best artists on earth! The hair though, seems a bit flat compared to the rest of the pic.

Wow! The coloring is great, and I love the design on her dress, its so pretty. The coloring in the background is also bright, stunning, and wonderfully shaded. Awesome work.
