So here's my final Schoolism assignment - got five stars for this piece!

This final stage was mainly focused on bringing the piece together using all the techniques previously covered and polishing it a bit more.

I really enjoyed painting this and I think it's given my future work more focus; I've finally figured out that I enjoy rendering fairly realistically BUT on a cartoony/cute foundation. I guess I find it more satisfying creating characters with a wider appeal than the ever popular monsters, goblins and other unfriendly beings. That's not to say that I don't plan on dabbling in the grotesque at some point in the future!

As usual, all comments and critique welcome.
