Wow, what a great image! I love how really rich and believable it is yet still has that cartoony twist to it. Really nice. :thumbsup:

OK, I'm going to read the "making of" article now, and then I'll probably come back with more nice things to say.

Beautiful image. It is soft yet clean, something that could have easily turned into a smudge-fest.

Great work!
