Wonderful ! That's original, I love it.

Great atmosphere! I really like the background. What I miss is some interaction between the different parts of the clothing. A fantastic piece anyway.

 It remembered me Hayo movies, like Chihiro. That's awesome.

nice and colourful art, loving the sky

Two years was worth it. This is amazing.

Man, that's crazy. Some aspects of it perhaps lack detail (mainly the cobble stones and the darker side of the clouds) but I love the colors you chose, especially that purple grass and dark green hillside. The figure's hands and feet look a little off (maybe too small?) but those are my only gripes. The fabric texturing and shading is quite admirable, in my opinion, as is that fantastic grass. Well done.

HummingBird (Level 1 Thug) @ 6/3/2011 08:43

Oh... Ma... GOOSH!

Turquoise (Level 2 Dealer) @ 6/2/2011 19:41

This is madness. Damn!

Xamllew (Level 3 Chief) @ 6/2/2011 11:53

Wow, I just wouldn't have the attention span to work on something that large and for that length of time. As complex as the costume is it's very readable. Some spots look a little too simplified though, like the grass which looks out of place next to the well detailed character.

Wonderfully amazingly wonderful.

Oh, I can totally understand not finishing most of the little "unfinished" looking spots; two years is crazy, I could never keep my attention on one piece that long!

peanutcookie (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 5/30/2011 09:28

 Wonderful colors makes me think of the movie IT ;p

Peach (Level 6 Made) @ 5/30/2011 03:15

 @DawnBringer: yes, you were right, for some reasons some edits on the flames weren't in the final piece I've uploaded. I've found them and re-uploaded the piece with the corrected flame. Thanks for pointing it out.

Peach (Level 6 Made) @ 5/30/2011 02:17

 thanks a lot for the comments

Regarding the unfinished bits, I've been too much on this piece that I'm more concerned with smallest things (e.g. the right hand side of the mountain) rather than foreground and more prominent elements that would probably benefit some rather deep intervention (as someone pointed out, the hand). I think this is ok, and beareable on a certain extent, as the main purpose of this piece and the major effort I've taken is in the composition and the colours.

Colour wise, I can confirm that I've tried many times to join them but it completely removes the bright part of it, although I've always tried to work with a minimal set on each part. I would probably avoid such a huge palette next time and concentrate in more minimalistic and complex colour combination.

Chibiwing (Level 4 Deputy) @ 5/29/2011 20:52

Great job. : )

Ego (Level 6 Commander) @ 5/29/2011 20:22

First: This is awesome. Very much so, and I love it. Fave'd right off the bat.

Second: One of the things I thought once I learned just how many colors there are and that they're all in separate ramps was that the piece could do with some color-unification(something I'm bad at myself, btw). However, on second thought, unification could muddy up the super-vibrant and super-contrasting colors, so I'd keep it as it is for the most part. In response to Dawnbringer's comment on the Red and Magenta, I actually disagree, I think that the brilliantly saturated colors there make it really eye-popping without causing retinal bleeding.

Third: Some parts DO look a little unfinished. The aforementioned flame, and the (I think)forest by the castle.

Fourth: That grass is very good, easily showing form and motion despite being very minimally defined and curiously colored. Also, you have clouds that I desperately wish I could do.

DawnBringer (Level 10 Pixel artist) @ 5/29/2011 19:53

The green patterns on the dress are great and the fans look good, but the flame on the head looks really unfinished. A little too much staturation in the red & magenta. Some odd AA on the right shoulder.

showtime (Level 6 Made) @ 5/29/2011 19:16

This is amazing!

Hiuru (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 5/29/2011 18:29

 Should really revise his/her right hand...it's so much fatter than the left one.

Elastico-Gadget (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 5/29/2011 18:22

Colors are really fascinating... There are so many things to gaze at! I can barely stop scrutinizing it. The only major problem I have with it is about the legs, I can't really picture how they are placed. Very nice job though. Two years must have been a long time, but it is unquestionably worth it.
