Breathtakingly gorgeous! Could I trouble you to describe briefly what media you used on which parts of her? I've been interested in doing colored work like this with mixed media and helpful pointers would be awesome. Even just be able to identify the media used where would be very instructive. Thank you. :)

Thank you so much for the kind words. It's actually mixed media all over. I have a step-by-step: [link] (different piece but same technique). And there's a link in the description to the full tutorial. Hope it helps! :D

ooh :D , the helmet is very comples and I like the style of the waves in the backround :) if you dont mind answering, where did you use watercolour? I want to know because I would not mind trying mixed media however I need practice with watercolour and need inspiration so I can understand that it is as good as using oil paint, acrylic etc, I steered clear of watercolour because I never really wanted to go for a subtle effect in most of my pieces, However I feel like experimenting...
