Good start, everyone! It's interesting to see all the different ways people are approaching this theme...
@Cyonix: the character looks good.
@bluemoon: great start! Not sure what's the cause of the lighting problem, though.
@BWSman: very cool image... Wondering what you'll come up with next!
@NV Oracle: I hope you will join! Still plenty of time...the deadline is April 30. Just one item needs to be untextured or retextured. Not even the main item, necessarily, though it should be an important item.
@Jindi: personally I think the reflection looks great.
@stormlyght: nice job with the texturing! As far as the hair is concerned, I have a hair tutorial (link in my sig) with some tips on that.
@ilena52: the tree bark looks nice...is that the part you retextured? Her eyes have an odd glow to them...not sure if that is intended.
@sithkitten: I definitely think the pose is better in your latest than in the previous version. Curious to see how this develops...
Keep up the good work, everyone!
