So many false starts. So much experimenting. It had to lead somewhere! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

@rheall I love the detail in her tail! Beautiful colors in this piece too!

Aww, thank you! Yeah, this was definitely an exercise in pushing the colours for me. I'm usually very conservative with my colour choices! Colour is hard!

@rheall yeah, it is. But all that work you put into texture, lighting, and the water and rocks looks really great. I want to try some of the things you did, because I think it all looks really good :)

@ScribbleAddict Aw geeze, thanks!! I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with! :D
