I like both the African princess and her cub companion. It reminds me I need to make my own fictional African princess character. I modeled mine after a certain Street Fighter character from the third game installment. That same character was Elena. I have liked Africa, and Egypt and Kenya in particular as my two favorite nations of that continent.
This is really pretty. The background is gorgeous. You really captured an African theme! Her expression of gazing at the cube is cute, and the cub looking back completes it. The cub is cute period. Haha, great job posing it on her shoulder. The girls clothes definintely look African. Where do you find your ideas for clothes (especialy from other cultures)? I really like the boarder around the picture, too; it's very interesting and fits the pic well. Keep on doing what you obviously love!
