Watch out for this one, she is beautiful, but she's been known to ensnare and eat those that wander too far into her sanctuary.

*internal and external screaming*  This is so flipping gorgeous!  I love the bright green/aqua details on her scales, especially the part that's in shadow, and her skintone is beautiful!

I keep trying to figure out the best way to express how much I like this. I'm unable to. I am so in love with the coloring scheme here that it's blowing my mind. This just makes me inspired to put more effort into coloring. Truly, this has to be a fave!

Oh, I love those aquamarine eyes!!  Her fins & fingerwebs look fantastic, too!  I love how you have her tail draped over that branch.

Thank you! I'm glad I went with the aqua eyes instead of gold. The gold didn't pop quite enough. So I'm happy to hear the new eyes were a good choice! ;D

There are no words in my vocabulary that could truly do this piece justice so I will have to settle for absolutely beautiful.

I can say that this is awesome. I can compliments the incredible design and seemingly realistic depiction of the environment and the character. I can even say that this is one of your best and more greatest pieces.

But I think that you know all this. So instead of saying the answer to you unasked question if this is a well done piece. I will ask you one question.

Carmen, Why are you so awesome?

Thank You.
