Howdy: I'm debating whether to lighten up the leather parts, but I think the darker browns show off the green. I've not yet decided what color to do for her hair. She needs lots of touching up.

Thanks ::): And I'm just happy they look like leaves; her shield and outer armor are actually just flat surfaces and I'm usually highly intimidated by the "blank canvas." I did do some touching up where my hand apparently spazzed on the shield. I'm not 100% happy with her hair and am thinking I may do a few more layers, though the overall red color will stay the same.

Ditto with the others. Your freehand leaf work looks beautiful, and the hair is nice, but more highlighting etc wouldn't hurt. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished piece ::):

Thanks for the kind comments, folks; at long last, I think I'm pretty much done:

(and hey, I figured out how to get the picture to look bigger *404*)

I didn't want to upload all the alternate views, but more pics can be found on my blog once I get the post done. There are a couple of spots (such as between the straps on her shoulder) I would (and tried to) fix, but between minimum brush sizes and my shaky hands, it just ain't happenin'. Suggestions for improvement are, of course, always welcome ::):

Only suggestion is practice. She has points that could be improved I'd agree - but I'd still say she is adorable and excellent. Practice is about the only cure for unsteady hands, I think :)
