She has a stern, but thoughtful look on her face. It's as if she's looking on a someone departing for an important agenda and her mind is whirling with thoughts as to the outcome. Her skin tones are also amazing to me, because it gives that ethereal touch that makes her what she is. As if she has more to her than just flesh, she has elements of nature that she was born from.

Also, this is just in my head, but I think it's a neat contrast that her bust sits on a rather modest base of wood. It would not be considered very regal for a queen, but she's a faerie queen and I would imagine that it represents that profound connection to nature they're known to have. As if it's not what could be made, but cherishing what grows from the earth. If I could I'd certainly buy this work.

yes I based her on Thistles and so , she is humble and prickly as well as queenly.The basse is also in the same theme the wood is stained to look like its been in the weather. greyed and simple. she doesnt need our idea of riches of royaltie in order to comand her people.

Wow, very nice coloring on the skin. The folds on the eyelids are really nice, too. I always have trouble with those.
