Thank you for the comment! Little Garet is meant to be dancing with glee at being a flowerhead. XDD For this piece, I used Photoshop to color. I basically just used the scattered leaf brushes on various opacities and colors over the original flat colors to create the textures! The trick is to use brushes of different sizes and colors. I'm glad you like the effect.
Awww... This is so adorable. >3< You really emphasized all of their expressions, which I love - Ivan looks so innocent, aw, and Satty is getting impatient! I really love this piece overall. Best of luck in the contest!!
