Fantastic work; really loving this style. Only crit I have for this guy is that some of the shapes (leaves especially) seem to get a bit lost. I feel like it could use just a touch more linework in the interior.

I had to say your colors are amazing. In smaller format, I swore this was an actual painted statue you had made.
