Twilight Waltz by MichelleHoefener Twilight Waltz by MichelleHoefener
I've wanted to do a fully shaded and detailed illustration of my character, Iris, for awhile now, and finally completed this. Iris has both elf-like and unicorn lineage which is such a fun combination to work with. I'm still developing the details about Iris and her story in my spare time. I hope you like it! :)

- Photoshop CS
- Detail Shot

This is beautiful but my suggestion is to change the background because it is too distracting and too much the same color as to what your character is wearing. I find I can see the background better than the character. I also wish her other foot was visible since it just seems to disappear into the green in the background.

Please tell me, how long did it take for you to learn how to colour SO well and understand the effects of light and dark and painfully hidden colours? I hope to get this good someday >.< Please give me some helpful advice and maybe some tips and tricks :-3

O_O weird, I have a white/light-purple haired character who wears purple named Iris, too! Though she is much more reserved and uses magic rather than a material weapon.
