I like how you drew the water. It flows loose, like her hair. The gem effect in nice, was it done with color pencil or did you use a computer like most people do?

Wow. Just wow.

I know I tell you this so often, but the colouring is just suprerb here. The lighting from the stones is just fabulous, and the skin and hair - you can just imagine what they'd feel like to touch.

This is a gorgeous, gorgeous picture of Orqua.

It's too bad that you haven't coloured the water and sky as well as Orqua herself :/ It's still great og course, ecspecially her hair and stomach.

Awww, my goodness..! She's so beautiful..!

I really love your characters. You have a nice variation of different ones who are all unique in terms of storyline, personality and appearance. Your orca (and other marine) characters are especially beautiful and unique. I love how you draw them.

Orqua is so pretty ^^ Her hair looks so long and loose, and her markings are so nice. I really admire your hand coloring skills. What do you do most of this with? Colored pencils? =] I'm still learning, but you do show a good variety of ways things can be colored, so it helps me out. The bold colors of the character stand out so nicely on the background. Very well drawn and colored. I like her glowing necklace.

Happy holidays :holly:

I like the shine you have on her gems. The black is really nice & smooth & her hair is just beautifully done. I feel however that the background & water should be just as smooth as Orqua.

:wow: this is the first time I've been dev-arting for long time
last time I saw your Orqua work they still had the stumpy arms
This I must admit I really prefer it this way, it just seems more natural (how huamanly self centered is that, I'm ashamed)
but I really do like this form much more, its more complete somehow
as alway you bring such a recognisable style to all your work
thats defined by unique characters and wonderful attention to detail
Brilliant work :D keep up the brilliant at
