:bulletgreen: Stock photo for BG --> [link]

Time for a little more Strawberry Shortcake again! It's Coco Calypso in her princess outfit! I drew this weeks ago when I found an official pic of her in this getup! And seeing ~bunnyfriend's deviation of Princess Tea Blossom also pushed me to do make this! =)

Dang, I now officially hate working with circular stuff! :XD: The details on Coco were hard to render here and took me longer than usual to finish! The flower jewels took some extra time to polish off, as well as the folds on her skirt! But it was all worth it, she looks great! :aww: I finished off the pic with a bit of yellow lighting and rendering a bit of color to the lineart!

My apologies to ~VampireKittenStock for not notifying her firsthand before using her stock photo. And since I feel that I didn't do her photograph much justice (the full view was 2 megs, I didn't wait for it to load and hence the blurry BG).

Think drawing circles freehand is tough? Try straight lnes! Anyway, in the vernacular, I think she makes a "berry" beautiful princess.

Circles are EVIL. :XD:

Aww, this is really cute! Personally I quite like the blurred background, though the frame looks kinda... out of place. Maybe a plainer border? The actual picture is rendered very well, I like the coloured lines and colours you chose. And the lineart is nice too! The shading and detail is very pretty and suits the mood- though I still think you should make the hair a little shinier and such :XD: But I really like this picture. She's so cute! :aww:

Yes, circles are a nightmare to render in freehand! :XD:

I tried a plain brown border, but it looked somewhat dull compared to the one I used here. Anyway, thanks for noticing the colored lines! I decided to take just a bit more effort in finishing off this pic to make her look more spiffy! :D
