*Edit* Hey guys, thanks for all the comments and critiques. After getting some feedback, I started to look at the nose a bit more and didn't really like how it looked either, so i tried to fix it a little. Not sure if it made much of a difference, but let me know what ya think. It'll probably be more noticeable in the close-ups.

Surprisingly this ended up being a straight forward painting, nothing really changed with the character or background as I progressed, which is rare. Only thing I changed was a simple black mask that I had covering the lower part of her face, decided to get rid of it though. Overall spent around 20 hours or so on it i think, for the most part I was satisfied with the outcome.

Critiques/comments welcomed.

Impressive. The textures are damn good, from the leaves and trees to the clothes and skin. That pendant she's holding's very well done too, from the shape to the appropriate lighting on her and the ground. The contrast of visual environments is interesting too, mixing the 'deep dark forest' motif with the rainbow. And maybe it wasn't planned, but the foggy path with dead fall behind her and no footprints gives the impression of forward being the only option, like her goal's something that can't be avoided or turned away from.

Again, excellent piece.
