Tree Spirit

So, it's been a while since I posted much of anything here. It isn't because I haven't done anything recently, just that I haven't done anything worth sharing in a while. I'm going to start tackling a new 3d project next week - an environment - so we'll see how that goes. Then I may take a stab at Dave G's first 129 project, although, I've never been particularly fond of self-portraits. Or perhaps I'll make a portrait of someone else... tho, portraits of recognizable people are quite difficult to do well. I'm still working out concepts for a possible character to model in the future. So I'd like to present yet another stab at the "tree spirit" character. I like this concept, but may abandon it for an option that would provide more variety in textures - although I would love to try creating a realistic tree texture- which is why I've gone in this direction :)
The background to this image is a result of some Mucha inspired color studies I did earlier this week- since I feel like my color sense could use some improvement. The color in this image isn't particularly amazing, but I'm still working it out and this isn't really at a finished level yet.
Anyways, without further ado...

Any and all comments are appreciated!

Beautiful Celtic designs, plus I love the ambiguity of the character (girl in a tree dress? girl turning into a tree?); this is actually great because it lets the viewer decide for his/herself.

Great job, Alyssa!
