yeah, i tried even just adding those sparkly specks that just float around in the water too, but i went away from it. I'll mess around and see if anything like that in the background comes out. thanks!
I like the colors you use in this one. The only thing that is strange to me, is the shadow. There is no real light source reflecting (or maybe I see it as a different skin color tone) on her, but a strong shadow is under her. Maybe give her visible highlights or lighten up the shadows a bit. But very beautiful drawing.
