That is completely pimp! I love it. She looks completely adorable. I have to say that I love the orange. I guess her color scheme does fit with more orange-y colors.
I am especially in love with her hair, I love the way her ribbon is tangled with her braid, and the flow is just amazing. I'll admit that I'm a tiny bit disappointed that you made her shoe-less, since i really like the design on them, but the pose and the feel of the image does make sense for her to have bare feet.
All in all though, I am so glad I got a chance to commission you, it was completely worth it. Thanks so much for all the effort you put into this.
Also, my bad for dropping a commission on you right before AWA, I'm sure you had tons of stuff to do.
if you often make it orange, you could always stick a layer of blue/grey-blue/purple on some sort of layer mode to tone the colors down. Or you can just adjust hue/saturation when you're done and flattened the whole piece... :I
