Such a beautiful and well detailed pic, astounding design in the decorative detail, such smooth, neat, and even lines. And it's adorable too. I'd fav, but mobile DA is stupid.

Wow, you put a lot of effort into the details!
I really like the depht you created with the knotworks!
Awesome! : )
But perhaps it would've looked better if you only drew her from the side and left the legs.

Perhaps, though I wanted to try out more knotwork that I couldnt get on a side view...looked event stranger when I was orignally sketching it out with just the head. :P

I love the concept and presentation of having the knotwork strands coming from the character's head in the fashion of hair and sweeping off the bounds of the drawing. It shows off the patterns beautifully while keeping the anthro character relevant. Nice work on the shading and texture, as well. :) This piece looks quite professional.

Thank you very much. I was aiming for patterns that came across more as braids, then it was time for fun and details. :)

Excellent work. I love the knot-work, it looks amazing. A lot of detail went into it and it's great fun to look at, like any awesome Celtic knot design should be. I guess you did a pretty good job huh?

Thanks. Its mostly made up of some of the more simple patterns as I didnt want to melt the contents of my skull.

I do not blame you. Melted skull syndrome is a pretty big obstacle to making more art.

Your gallery shows a good use of colours and various creativity.
All I could say is to keep it up, I find doodle pages always a good way to get down ideas and textures.
